Jodi Bernstein is a 3rd year PhD candidate in Dr. L’Abbe’s Lab. She is a Registered Dietitian and has a Masters in Public Health, specializing in community nutrition. For Jodi’s doctoral thesis, she is evaluating sugars in the Canadian prepackaged food supply as well as consumers’ knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours related to sugars. Most recently, Jodi has developed an algorithm to estimate the free sugars contents of Canadian food and beverages. Results have since been used to populate One Sweet App, a mobile app that allows users to track their free sugars intakes and compare this to guidelines from the World Health Organization.
