PepsiCo nutrition scientists are committed to the advancement of knowledge

The PepsiCo Health and Nutrition Sciences team studies the effects of nutrition on the human body, as well as the ingredients used in our products and their contribution to overall health and wellbeing. We invest in research that continues to explore the benefits of our current portfolio. This research contributes to the broader body of evidence within nutrition science to advance knowledge within the field.

These research endeavors are also used to educate practitioners and those in the nutrition science community, and to make evidence-based nutrition recommendations. 

This science-based research utilizes the appropriate validated gold-standard research methods which are monitored to ensure that the guiding principles underlying Good Clinical Practice standards are being followed. PepsiCo Health & Nutrition Sciences accomplishes this globally by partnering with academic institutions, contract research organizations as well as trade associations, based on clearly stated hypotheses and an objective analysis.
