SupplySide West podcast: Translating nutrition science to the plate

In this SupplySide West edition of the Healthy INSIDER Podcast, Rachel Adams, managing editor, and Amanda Archibald, registered dietician and principal at the Genomic Kitchen, tackle the question: How do we translate nutrition science to the plate?

Nutrigenomics is the study of how food and food constituents impact how genes behave. Science increasingly demonstrates the potential for food to impact health via its impact on gene expression, but without culinary application, the practical impact on population health is limited. In this SupplySide West edition of the Healthy INSIDER Podcast, Rachel Adams, managing editor, and Amanda Archibald, registered dietician and principal at the Genomic Kitchen, tackle the question: How do we translate nutrition science to the plate? Adams and Archibald discuss:

  • Nutrigenetics vs. nutrigenomics, and the concept of culinary genomics;
  • How use of specific ingredients that contain bioactives can turn certain genes “on” and others “off;” and
  • How the concept of culinary genomics can be applied at large scale to impact health.
