Research interests

Dr Riddells research is primarily concerned with the role of micronutrients in diesease prevention and health. This research can be broken down into the following main areas:

How much salt is consumed within the Australian diet, what are the dietary and health implications and what strategies can be employed to effectively reduce intake?

What are the dieatary and lifestyle determinants of iron levels in women and can dietary interventions significantly improve iron levels and health?

Current research projects investigating these three areas include investigations into the impact of salt intake and soft drink consumption on food and health; and dietary strategies to improve intake and status of iron in adult women.
