Dietary recommendations based on genetics seen as more credible than general dietary guidance

An increasing number of consumers regard dietary recommendations based on genetics as being more credible than general dietary advice, according to a recent study conducted by the University of Toronto’s Department of Nutritional Sciences. Ninety-three percent of participants who received dietary recommendations based on their DNA agreed that the information would be useful when considering their diet with 95% wanting to know more about their test results and genetic recommendations.

In comparison, only 78% of participants who received general dietary advice regarded the information as useful and credible with only 76% wanting to learn more about the dietary recommendations.
