Dr. German researches the role of fats and other components in the diet, developing ways to assess health and metabolism in response to foods. Milk is the model he uses as a genetic blueprint for foods to support health. Milk evolves for the purpose of nourishing growing mammals and this evolutionary logic is the basis of the research to discover physical, functional and nutritional properties of milk components and to apply these properties as principles to foods.
