Giuseppe's research focuses on evidence-based nutrition, a recently emerged field as the bottom line of the Health Technology Assessment applied to food and nutrition. The main interests include the impact of dietary and lifestyle habits on common non-communicable diseases. In particular, he produced over 80 papers on the effects of dietary patterns (i.e., Mediterranean diet) and specific antioxidant-rich foods (i.e., coffee, tea), as well as individual antioxidants (i.e., polyphenols, n-3 PUFA) on cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, cancer, and depression.
