Instrument you couldn’t live without? In recent years, we have continuously used high-resolution MS for the different foodomics approaches (proteomics and metabolomics) developed in the lab. Without this technology all the advances done in this new area would have been impossible to achieve.
Controversial opinion? I am not so enthusiastic about the concept of “personalized nutrition.” In my opinion, right now this is only a marketing reclaim useful to catch innocent customers (and of course their money). We have a long, long way to walk before we can get enough knowledge about the relation of diet with health and the different answers provided by the different individuals to food, including their specific genetic and environmental conditions.
