Based on the premise that everyone is an individual, therefore the individual’s optimal food intake is also as unique as they are.
It aims to provide the right food, to the right person at the right time to maximise their health outcomes. It considers the individuals unique biology make-up (genetics and epigenetics), the whole food and it’s individual constituents, the influence of environmental and other lifestyle factors to determine the nutritional needs of the person in that moment in time.
Personalisation refers to the identification that we are different, and therefore considerations need to be made that account for that difference. Precision relates to the application of personalised differences at the right time in the right way.
Episode 1: The fundamental principles of what makes us unique and the considerations needed to understand the appropriate food prescription.
Episode 2: Investigate the need for precision health, non-responders and current evidence of the development of individualised nutrition plus the role of technology in capturing the complexity of individuality in a meaningful way.
