The right foods for your
The most ambitious nutrition study of its kind ever conducted to understand our individual responses to foods.JOIN THE STUDY
Our gut microbiome is unique and key to
our highly personalised responses to food
Gut Microbiome: The trillions of bacteria inside our gut, weighing 1-2 kg, and
impacting our metabolism including how we store fat and how hungry we feel
Our modern lifestyle has reduced
the diversity of our gut microbiome
A study on thousands of people around the globe to generate a better answer for everyone
- Providing samples and understanding the bacteria in our gut using state of the art gut microbiome sequencing technology
- Consuming and logging set meals and foods we want to understand our unique responses to, over a period of 2 weeks
- Using novel sensors and tests to measure a number of our biological and non-biological responses to these foods
The PREDICT Science team is led by Tim Spector, Professor of Genetic Epidemology at King’s College and Director of Twins UK, and is a multi-disciplinary team of top scientists from renowned institutions around the world, including Harvard University and University of Oxford
Our scientific advisory board includes world experts in the areas of stool extraction, metagenomics, gut microbiome, hunger, obesity, nutrition and metabolomics
We are building upon 25 years of research on 13,000 twins, probably the most studied group of people on the planet, with strong associations between the microbiome and our responses to food.

“Based on the results, I have included
speciﬁc fruit and vegetables in my diet
as well as reduced certain reﬁned
carbohydrates and processed meats.”
Amelia’s gut microbiome analysis showed that, unusually, 50% of
her gut microbiome contained a bacterium called pseudomonas
generally associated with inversions. She also had a very low
proportion of ﬁrmicutes which is associated with a poor diet and
obesity and a slight increase of enterobacteria associated with IBS
and common on people on junk food diets that can produce toxins.
