Metabolic Kitchen

The Metabolic Kitchen is available to all UIC investigators for the conduction of clinical feeding trials

Housed in the UIC Department of Kinesiology and Nutrition, the Metabolic Kitchen is an industrial-sized, professional-quality facility staffed by professional chefs and registered dietitians that serves as an on-campus resource for UIC faculty and staff whose research requires study participants to follow a tightly controlled diet. The kitchen staff design, prepare and package meals according to a researcher’s protocol, then deliver the meals to the study’s coordinator for distribution to research participants.
