New personalized nutrition opportunities

Personalized nutrition is a broad term, which could encompass considering from on one side personalizing to someone’s gender, age or health condition, or you could go right to the other end of the spectrum where you can personalize based on genetics or gut microbiome. For Aoife Marie Murphy of Kerry, it is open to the consumer and what they really feel like. "We know that millennials are very interested in technology and are very interested in these customized solutions and want to have products that are unique to them. They want to have products that are targeted to themselves, so this area of personalized nutrition does feed into this need for inherently healthy products," she notes.

The science behind personalized nutrition

Technological advances, including wearable nutrition tracking devices and microbiota mapping tools, present new potential to address an aware consumer, who is interested in tailored nutrition concepts that specifically work for them. “Technology has made people aware of their own behavior for the first time, as people are wearing these devices and using them,” Dr. Lisa Ryan, Head of the Department of Natural Sciences at Galway-Mayo (GMIT) in Ireland, tells NutritionInsight. “One of the targets of public health in the past was to make people more aware of what they were doing. It is now about harnessing that awareness and driving it into further good. People are really engaging with their health and wanting to try to do something to address it. Our challenge is to be able to allow them to do so.”
