The Grocery Purchase Quality Index

If you’re familiar with my research, it’s probably because I led the development of the 2005 and 2010 revisions of the Healthy Eating Index (HEI). Currently, I’m working on the evaluation of the Grocery Purchase Quality Index-2016 (GPQI-2016), which is an HEI-like tool we developed here at the University of Utah to assess the quality of grocery purchases. We think of grocery purchases as a proxy for the home food environment. A paper describing the development of the GPQI-2016 has recently been accepted for publication in the Journal of Food Composition and Analysis and is available here. If you don’t have access to that journal, you can read the paper here.
