Participation in this study will involve an initial two-week run in period to get used to the study diet.
After this two week period, you will be randomly assigned a study group. You will either take a high-polyphenol olive oil (extra virgin olive oil) or a low-polyphenol olive oil (refined olive oil).
You will consume the other oil during the second dietary intervention period.
During each phase of the study, you will be asked to come to the Ragle Human Nutrition Center after a 10-12 hour overnight fast.
At each visit, body measurements will be taken. You will be asked to eat a serving of olive oil and bread, and three urine and blood samples will be collected over the course of 4 hours.
This study will involve multiple blood draws and urine collections. These will be made across 5 visits at the Ragle Human Nutrition Research Center: - One blood draw during the initial screening visit to determine eligibility, - Three blood draws and urine collections at the start of each dietary intervention period, and - Three blood draws and urine collections at the end of each dietary intervention period.
Trained phlebotomists or nurses will be performing all of the blood draws.
