Antigone Kouris has over 30 years experience as a clinical Dietitian, researcher, author and more recently food product developer.
Her pioneering PhD was the first study to show in the 1990s that adherence to a Mediterranean Diet Pattern (MDP) in old age conferred longevity. Her research team at the time was also the first to develop a validated MDP score, enabling many researchers around the world to study the health benefits of the MDP, contributing to the huge body of evidence surrounding this diet.
