Position Paper on Nutritional Genomics

The Academy's position paper "Nutritional Genomics" was published in the February Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

The science of nutritional genomics is an emerging discipline and holds potential for targeting dietary intervention that may affect health. The genome is the entire set of genetic instructions needed to build and maintain a living organism. Nutritional genomics is the science of how nutrients and genes work together to influence health and disease risk. Connections between nutrigenetic testing and dietary advice can be made once further research has been documented.

The Academy's position statement is:

Nutritional genomics provides insight into diet and genotype interactions to affect phenotype. The practical application of nutritional genomics for complex chronic disease is an emerging science and the use of nutrigenetic testing to provide dietary advice is not ready for routine dietetics practice. Registered dietitian nutritionists need basic competency in genetics as a foundation for understanding nutritional genomics; proficiency requires advanced knowledge and skills.
