The Office of Research and Faculty Development has earmarked $200,000 for this program.

Researchers Are Recruiting Breastfeeding Mothers for Research on Food Allergens

U of I researchers are recruiting breastfeeding mothers aged 18 years or older — and their infants up to 1 year old — to participate in a study exploring the detection of cow’s milk and soy proteins in breastmilk. The hope is that this study will help in the development and availability of a tool which would allow breastfeeding mothers to test their breastmilk for major food allergens, thus helping them be more informed when feeding their infants with potential food allergies or sensitives. Participation would require completing several questionnaires, eliminating cow’s milk and soy products from your diet for several days, consuming soy and cow’s milk daily for several days and providing samples of breastmilk and maternal/infant stool. Participants can receive up to $200 for participation. Contact Cassandra Partridge at milk-allergens@uidaho.edu or 208-301-3740 for more information.
