Summer has arrived in Portugal and it seems like the world has descended on our town. Now that the sardine fishing ban has been lifted, it the air is constantly filled with smells of grilled sardines, coriander and olive oil.
 
In this week’s Personalized nutrition update newsletter we cover the latest research updates, developments in tech as well as consumer trends and events. The “Trends in Personalized nutrition” book is now out and I also am helping out my supervisor Prof Barbara Stewart-Knox (University of Bradford) with a short survey.
 
Happy reading!
