Through the McCormick Science Institute Research Program, MSI sponsors research at leading universities and research institutions.
All MSI-funded research is governed by our funding guidelines and is focused on advancing the scientific study of the health-enhancing properties of culinary herbs and spices in areas which we consider to have the potential to impact public health.
Consistent with MSI’s mission to support broad scientific understanding, all research teams that receive funding are required to submit their findings to reputable scientific journals for publication. MSI does not support research on spice blends proprietary to McCormick & Co., Inc. or research on experimental animals.
Under the guidance of nutrition scientists and a Scientific Advisory Council, MSI executes research in three broad research areas. Learn more about the three research pillars:
