Abstract: In recent years there has been general agreement that dietary advice needs to be tailored to the individual and that we need to move from a one size fits all approach. Evidence has emerged that personalising dietary advice results in improved dietary behaviours. Concomitant with this there has been an increase in the application of developing technologies such as metabolomics to nutrition studies. The concept of the metabotype has emerged and set to play a key role in the development and delivery or personalised nutrition. The term metabotype refers to a group of individuals with similar metabolic profiles. This review gives an overview of the potential role of this approach in delivering optimal nutrition advice.
