DNA dining breakthroughs
Personalised meals based on your blood type and/or DNA: is this the future of healthy dining? A company called Thriva certainly thinks so. It offers a service that analyses people’s blood biomarkers and then provides a bespoke report and GP recommendations on how to improve your lifestyle. Last year it teamed up with VitaMojo, a restaurant and software company, to allow diners in London-based restaurants to design their perfect meal based on their specific nutritional needs. At the same time, companies such as 23andMe use DNA testing to create personalised, genetically guided meal and training plans. We think this could take off in a big way.
