Reportlinker Adds The Future of Nutrigenomics: New opportunities in personalized nutrition and food-pharma collaboration

NEW YORK, Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The Future of Nutrigenomics: New opportunities in personalized nutrition and food-pharma collaboration

Nutrigenomics explores how nutrients or bioactive dietary compounds can influence gene expression and an individuals risk to certain diseases. Nutrigenetics is the study of how variations in an individual's genetic makeup can increase or decrease the need for a specific nutrient or bioactive food component. Nutrigenomics has the potential to impact various parts of the food chain including the genetic modification of crops and animal feeds, the development of nutrigenomic tests to monitor food safety and personalization of diets, as well as the identification of nutritional supplements and nutrigenomic based products which may offer potential health benefits. The consumer environment is driving growth in the Nutrition & Health market. Over the past decade, consumers have become more concerned for their health and are increasingly inclined to invest in DTC nutrigenetic tests to assess their risk of disease and obtain dietary advice. Healthcare providers too, are keen to shift some of the burden of healthcare costs to individuals and recognize that the personalization of nutrition may be beneficial. The Health and nutrition market is currently worth around $485 billion. This report reviews the business strategies of leading companies regarding the adoption of nutrigenomic technologies and establishment of public-private partnerships as well as potential opportunities for biomarker discovery with the pharma and diagnostic industry to personalize nutrition and medicine.
