Nutritional genomics is an:
umbrella term that includes nutrigentics, nutrigenomics, and nutritional epigenomics,
Nutrigentics, nutrigenomics and nutritional epigenomics all pertain to how:
nutrients and genes interact and are expressed to reveal phenotype outcomes, including disease risk
the effect of genetic differences on the response to dietary intake and the ultimate impact on disease risk
the interaction between dietary components and the genome and the resulting changes in proteins and other substances that impact gene expression
the impact of diet on changes in gene expression without changing the DNA sequence
Genomics has the potential to produce:
major nutrition breakthroughs in the prevention of chronic disease and obesity and to identify new biomarkers that will more accurately assess a person's health and nutritional status.
