Foodomics: A Comprehensive Approach to Food and Nutrition Analysis
Foodomics connects the dots between food and nutrition sciences using advanced omics technologies. Simply put foodomics examines quantitative data on vast numbers of constituent molecules simultaneously (proteins, metabolites, lipids, etc.) to study the composition of food compounds and how these components affect human health. This broad outlook demands large-scale approaches that focus on a large range of analytes.
Implementing sophisticated proteomics, lipidomics or metabolomics studies is one that demands highly skilled data analysis and interpretation experts. In taking an omics approach, foodomics researchers use omics data to study nutrition fields ranging from food chemistry, food technology, and even the clinical science. All these fields aim to explore the impact of food and nutrition on the human body and biological systems involved in the digestive processing of food, absorption of vitamins, food intolerance and nutritional disease.
At SCIEX we pride ourselves in our commitment to develop accessible high throughput technologies; our team also focuses on innovating workflows in both food and omics workflows. This combination enables omics data applicable in the academic industrial environments to drive food research and time-critical analysis in the food testing industry.
