Does dietary fibre improve the health of people with type 2 diabetes? That is the question PhD candidate Iris van Damme (Human Nutrition & Health) is studying.

The ‘Better food for diabetes’ study, a collaboration between WUR, the Nutrition & Healthcare Alliance and Ede and Arnhem hospitals, started last December. ‘We know from other studies that diabetics who eat a lot of fibre are healthier,’ says Van Damme. ‘We want to see what those results mean for the Dutch context.’
