Nutrition helpline

Keeping up-to-date with everything happening in the nutrition arena is difficult and time consuming. Our team of nutritionists have many of the answers at their fingers tips and can help with literature reviews, nutrition strategy development, nutrition profiling of products, and advice on the most appropriate practical nutrition studies that we undertake here at Leatherhead.

If you have a nutrition question or problem which you are struggling to solve or need some topline information our expert team of nutritionists are on hand to help. All members have a number of allocated helpline hours according the level of membership they hold. We will be able to advise you if your question can be answered in the hours available or if additional hours will need to be purchased.

If you would like us to help solve a current challenge, please email: [email protected]


Leatherhead’s nutritionists have a wide range of experience and expertise. We also draw on technical databases including our own science and news database of journals and books, and have access research papers via other scientific journals.
