It’s not every day you get to hear about nutrition research straight from the expert himself! Dr. Taylor Wallace has a passion for food science and technology that creates a safer, healthier and more nutritious food supply, and a perspective on industry research that may surprise you.

While attending the University of Kentucky, Taylor fell in love with the field of food science and the technology used to create a safer, healthy and more nutritious food supply in a world with a fast-growing population and diminishing natural resources.  He became particularly interested in the functional properties of foods, how different foods affect human health, and how specific diet patterns can be used to prevent the onset of chronic disease.  He spent the next few years focusing his doctorate research on the health-promoting properties of a group of compounds known as “anthocyanins,” the orange-red to blue-violet colors in many fruits and vegetables. 

Today, Taylor focuses much of his professional career on nutrition and lifestyle changes for preventing disease.  He’s worked in academic, company, and not-for-profit sectors of the food industry, and currently owns his own scientific consulting firm, the Think Healthy Group, which he uses to continue his research passion, conduct scientific reviews, author books, and communicate the importance of nutrition, food safety, and food technology.
