Our vision

Different nutrients and food products have been shown to play vital roles in the body’s molecular mechanisms. Knowledge of these processes, and the possibility of controlling them via what we eat, has opened up the field of personalised nutrition.

This, however, can only be achieved when the genetic profile of individual persons, and the context in which they live, are taken into account. With this knowledge, precision, individualised nutritional interventions can be prescribed , a concept that in the coming years will form part of our everyday lives improving health with the greatest effectiveness.
