Improving the accuracy of dietary intake assessment: From cameras to molecules

The Achilles heel of nutritional science is the inability to will understand what people eat in the home environment with any degree of accuracy. although there has been advances made using Internet based tools which automatically calculate the nutritional content of the dietary information in put. This has little impact on the rates of misreporting. There is need for more disruptive technologies. In this presentation we will explore the development of camera and metabolomic tools to explore dietary intake.
