Our Direction

The Center for Health and Nutrition Research is funded by the Vitamin Case Consumer Settlement Fund, which was established using funds paid to settle the State of California’s anti-trust lawsuit over price fixing by six vitamin manufacturers that controlled 80 percent of the world´s vitamin market. A major goal of the Center is to promote the health of Californians by identifying the roles of California fruits, vegetables and nuts in providing vitamins and other phytochemicals that can lower the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease.
