Nestlé Sees Personalized Vitamins On The Horizon

June 26, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
A Nestlé company health research unit has joined forces with a Massachusetts-based analytical technologies firm to research the possibility of creating “made-to-measure” vitamin combinations customized for individuals. The first phase of their research will develop tests that can accurately measure levels of vitamins and other nutrients in blood and urine. Current analytical techniques aren’t sensitive enough, Nestlé says, are too slow, and lack the ability to measure a wide variety of molecules. Nestlé and Waters Corporation hope to come up with technologies that measure nutrients “in a quick, accurate and robust way”.
