The event

Will our genes soon be deciding what lands on our plate? The still young science of nutrigenomics is concerned with researching interrelations between nutrition and genetic material. The objective is to present recommendations based on genotypes and in future to develop foods that minimise individual risks of becoming ill. It is hoped that the model of personalised nutrition will be able to introduce suitable prevention strategies at an early stage and use the resources of the health system more effectively. At the session scientists will provide an update on the current status of research, and representatives of the food industry will make it clear how strong the influence of personalised nutrition is already on product development today
