Targeting foods for
health and wellness
The science of nutrigenomics recognises that groups of individuals differ in their response to foods, food components and dietary patterns and targeting food and nutrition to these groups is essential for the maintenance of good health and protection against disease.
Nutrigenomics aims to identify and characterise the novel properties of foods that can be unequivocally associated with health and disease resistance.
Our health targets include
- Gut health
- Immune health including autoimmune diseases
- Anti-inflammatory diseases including
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Reduction of inflammation to promote wellness
