New research into gut health and nutrition has revealed that our response to food is very individual. Even identical twins have shown to have different metabolic reactions when consuming the same meals in research studies. As this awareness grows, and consumers become conscious of its impact, the demand for personalised nutrition is set to sky-rocket as people focus on their long term health and wellbeing.

What are the scientific breakthroughs being made in the personalised nutrition space? How is data being used to give people a greater insight into their personal diet and health? How will technology advance in the future and what areas will see the most growth? Join our panel including TNO Healthy Living, The Future Laboratory, The Naked Nutritionist, and Rabobank as the Table Talk Podcast looks at the exciting future for personalised nutrition.
