HNFE researchers develop the Healthy Beverage Index

Duffey, director of Global Scientific Affairs at LA Sutherland group and an adjunct faculty member of human nutrition, foods, and exercise, have developed the Healthy Beverage Index – a scoring system to evaluate the healthiness of what and how much people drink each day. They found that a higher index score correlates to better cholesterol levels, lowered risk of hypertension, and in men, lowered blood pressure.
