The FOOD Trial aims to see how the perception of flavour changes during illness and how we might improve hospital admissions for those who are unable to experience flavour through conventional means.
The FOOD trial is composed of two phases:
A qualitative survey aiming to understand the experience of flavour for those in hospital
A trial of established methods of flavour delivery in a novel setting
The trial is currently awaiting ethics approval with plans to start at a central London teaching hospital. If you would like to find out more about the trial or would be interested in hosting the trial at your site, please contact us.
