Diet related diseases are increasing world-wide, increasing the burden on our health care system and leading to a decrease in societal health. At the same time, there is a growing demand for healthier and personalised food options for enhanced wellbeing. The concept of personalised nutrition is transforming the agrifood industry and how diet recommendations and advice are provided to the consumer. The future lies in the integration of intelligent manufacturing (such as next generation 3D printing) with real-time sensors that capture individual needs, to develop structured foods that are customised for optimum nutrient delivery based on the person’s genetic information, lifestyle and physiological state.
