Answer to the current unknowns that arise about personalized nutrition

Description

There is increasing evidence that nutrients interact directly with genes and that certain foods with bioactive compounds are able to interact with regions of the genome, achieving a protective action against mechanisms of initiation of some diseases. The progress of studies in this area, will allow to specify diets based on the specific requirements of each person and will alow to determine a personalized nutrition for populations with common characteristics, particular groups and individuals.

The PRIMICIA project intends to contribute to the answer to the current unknowns that arise about personalized nutrition. 

Objectives

  • Develop new nutritional strategies to bring to the market foods of high efficacy in the control of chronic inflammation, from the personalization of the diet according to genetic profiles and the evaluation of its effect through nutrigenetic clinical trials. 

Actions

  • Technological development of a new range of bioactive ingredients, foods and food supplements for the control of chronic inflammation.
  • Evaluation of the effects of each new food/supplement developed through nutrigenetic clinical trials. 
  • Design and validation of the PRIMICIA diet for stratified populations according to their genetic profile. 

Expected Results

  • Formulation of products with bioactive compounds with anti-inflammatory effect for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and obesity.
  • To evaluate the different response of individuals to products designed according to their genetic profile. 
  • To integrate these products into diets that provide the optimum benefit to each individual, favouring the development of personalized nutrition.
