Title: Overall Nutrition Quality Index (ONQI)
Status: Completed
Topic: Nutrition / Diet;Program or Product Development
Funding Period: 3/2006-2008
Study Design: N/A
Purpose: The purpose of this research is to establish, validate, apply, and disseminate a measure of overall nutritional quality that can be applied to virtually any food on a supermarket shelf or restaurant menu.
Further Study Details:

The project involves several steps. These include:

  1. Review of existing nutritional scoring systems;
  2. Development of an algorithm for the classification of food based on their nutritional quality. The general principles of the algorithm include creating a trajectory score for each nutrient in the numerator and denominator. Each trajectory score is weighted by public health implication of prevalence and severity thus establishing the relative impact of each nutrient; and a
  3. Validation of the index by comparing the ONQI scores to scores generated by an expert panel of renowned nutritionists.
