1999, 2005a,b, 2006). For a specific study, the dietary plan that participants follow can be selected so that either genotypes of a specific crop or combinations of food crops could be evaluated. An advantage of this approach is that it provides a means by which to disseminate tested, credentialed diets to the consumer after evaluation in the clinic. Credentialing offers value to various members of both the agricultural and biomedical communities and would benefit consumers as a dietary plan that could be prepared at home or provided as prepared meals in a variety of settings.
