 2018 EuDAP Report / Posted 6 months ago by admin / 26 views

MooDFOOD is a multidisciplinary consortium involving 13 organizations in 9 European countries. Using an integrative approach, MooDFOOD has combined expertise in nutrition, preventive psychology, consumer behaviour and psychiatry to investigate the potential of food in the prevention of depression.

Commencing in 2014 the MooDFOOD project has undertaken extensive research into the potential of nutrients, dietary patterns, weight loss and food related behaviours in preventing depression. This has included a randomized controlled trial of 1025 participants, behavioral intervention studies and extensive literature reviews to examine the relationship between dietary factors and risk of depression.
