History

Nutritional research in Rehbrücke began in 1946 at the Institute of Nutritional Sciences and Food Provision and continued at the Central Institute of Nutrition of the Academy of Science of the German Democratic Republic from 1969 until 1991.

The German Institute of Human Nutrition (DIfE) was founded in 1992 by the Federal Republic of Germany and the State of Brandenburg as an independent foundation. It is a member of the Leibniz Association, an alliance of scientific institutions. The academic members of the DIfE have teaching obligations in nutritional sciences at the Universität Potsdam and in medicine at the Freie Universität Berlin.
