Metabolic Kitchen

The Metabolic Kitchen is available to all UIC investigators conducting 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.
