Will technology make truly personalised nutrition a reality?

Apr 06, 09:06 AM
Personalised nutrition is the future. With science showing that even twins who share similar DNA have individualised health responses to food and drink, it's clear that we need a more personal approach to our health and nutrition needs. How can we determine what is right for us, what we need to support our health, and what tools can assist us?

Joining us in this latest episode in our series on personalised nutrition are Nard Clabbers, Chief Science Officer, Happ, and Philipp Schulte, CEO & Co-Founder, Baze Labs who will guide us through the technical advances that will illuminate the personal nutrition that we need, and what the future will look like for this exciting sector of healthy food and drink.
