"Personalized nutrition" is a term that has been described in the literature in various ways. In summary, it can be defined as tailored nutrition interventions, developed according to each individual’s characteristics.
The personalized nutrition concept was developed in nutritional sciences mainly because it is now widely accepted that dietary guidelines and public health nutrition programs do not have the same effects on everyone.
Group programs may increase primary and/or secondary disease prevention, whereas Individualization could have a major impact on treatment of diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, in sport performance, successful pregnancy and other conditions, other to prevention achieved through.
The relationships, however, between individuals, their food consumption and behavior, and their phenotype (including health) are extremely complex and the focus of current research in nutritional sciences. In addition, personalized nutrition has significant overlapping with nutrigenetics, nutrigenomics, epigenetics, metabolomics, and micobiomics. The purpose, therefore, of this Special Issue of Nutrients on "Personalized Nutrition" is to highlight the majority if not all of these aspects, hence providing insight into dietary needs at the individual level, in order to prevent and/or treat disease as well as to improve the quality of life.
