Study TitleComposition of raw plant-based food items
Study TypeComposition of food
Study SummaryThe goal of this study was to use metabolomics as a platform to elucidate the chemical composition of plants in order to increase their resolution and in turn use the identified chemicals to reveal potential health impacts. 20 plant foods were studied: apple, banana, tomato, lettuce, strawberry, carrot, peach, onion, spinach, pepper, corn, garlic, basil, potato, soybean, black bean, olive, chickpea, sugarbeet, and pear.

Collection ID:CO002579
Collection Summary:Metabolomics experiments were performed on 20 food items collected from two local grocery stores (Whole Foods Market and Stop & Shop) depending on availability, freshness, and level of processing. Six food items of each food: apple, banana, basil, black bean, carrot, chickpeas, corn, garlic, lettuce, olives, onion, peach, pear, pepper, potato, spinach, soybean, strawberry, sugarbeet, and tomato, were bought for analysis.
