The role of genetic variation in influencing an individual’s response to diet and nutritional interventions is being increasingly recognized in nutrition research and practice. Discoveries in the field of nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics have paved the way for personalized nutrition by enabling us to tailor dietary recommendations to an individual’s genotype. This level of personalization is expected to hold great benefit by better aligning dietary recommendations with an individual’s requirements and potentially motivating favorable dietary changes that impact chronic disease risk. In this review, we discuss key findings in the field of nutritional genomics, issues surrounding genetic testing for personalized nutrition, and the role health care providers will play in delivering the science to individuals.
