Dr. Caomhan Logue

Lecturer in Dietetics
Ulster University

Dr Caomhan Logue is a Registered Dietitian and currently works as a Lecturer in Dietetics at the Nutrition Innovation Centre for Food and Health (NICHE), Ulster University, Northern Ireland. Caomhan graduated in 2012 with BSc Hons Dietetics and worked as a Clinical Dietitian before completing his PhD at Ulster. His PhD focused on investigating the feasibility of implementing a biomarker approach for assessing intakes of low-calorie sweeteners (LCS). Within this work he developed a novel analytical method of simultaneously determining urinary concentrations of five commonly consumed LCS, namely acesulfame-k, saccharin, cyclamate, sucralose and the excretory metabolite of steviol glycosides. By applying this novel approach, more objective and specific data on LCS intake/exposure can be acquired; therefore, his current research interests focus on applying this biomarker approach to investigate relationships between LCS and health.
