About a decade ago, scientists and science journalists presented nutrigenomics as a grand promise that each of us would soon know which foods fit in our personal healthy diet. Meanwhile, expectations have been adjusted to fit a changed reality. Simultaneously, societal issues surrounding personalized nutrition continue to rise, including whether consumers need it, food industry can produce it, all relevant stakeholders are willing and able to work together, and if it is a desirable way to go for nutrition. The commentary below reports the main results of 6 research projects that focused on nutrigenomics and its role in society.
