Do you take sugar in your tea or coffee? This Aberdeen university study needs you

An Aberdeen university is looking for volunteers to take part in a dietary study.

The Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health at Aberdeen University is conducting a study into how sugar habits develop over time.

The team at the Rowett Institute is keen to find men and women over the age of 16 who regularly take sugar in tea or coffee, who regularly drink sugary drinks and who regularly eat sugary breakfast cereals.

The study is being led by research assistant in the metabolic health research group, Jackie Duncan.

Participants in the research will have to visit the Rowett Institute four times along with some self-monitoring at home.

Those involved will receive £30 for their time and effort.

Volunteers wishing to take part in the study are encouraged to contact Jackie Duncan on 01224 438 752 or Dan Powell on 01224 438 101.
