There is increasing awareness among nutrition researchers, educators, healthcare professionals and consumers that the one-size-fits-all, population-based approach to nutritional guidance is inefficient and sometimes ineffective. Research in the field of nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics and has provided important new insights into the role of human genetic variation in modifying the response to nutrients and food bioactives. This session will review the scientific evidence, explain the benefits and limitations of genetic testing and describe criteria that can be used to determine the clinical validity and utility of consumer genetic tests for personalized nutrition.
