This series of paper was written in 2010, by my students as an assignment for their 4th Nutrition Elective. The data, results and conclusion drawn from these paper can be compared to the diets presently available from the same companies, to determine if any modifications of the2015 diets were made by the same companies. If changes have occurred have they cited the research to support the changes? One major change has been the sale of Iams to Walthams.
