One of the big issues currently faced throughout the world is a rise in non-communicable diseases, such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease and cancer. These diseases are all linked to the way we choose to live our lives, with one of the biggest factors being what we choose to eat. An unhealthy diet has been highlighted as a major factor in the vast majority of these diseases.

Accurately monitoring what people eat in their home environment with tools currently available is not possible. Current dietary methods have a misreporting rate of greater than 50%.

Watch this webinar to learn about the development of a metabolite profiling methodology that enables the accurate tracking of dietary intake which has implications for individual advice and monitoring of populations.

Key learning objective

  • Understand the limitations of current dietary monitoring tools
  • Understand the unique process of developing dietary metabolite monitoring tools
  • Understand the applicability of the new metabolite monitoring tool in clinical practice

Who should attend?

  • NMR scientists
  • Clinicians
  • Dietitians
  • Wellness coaches
