In 2018 Dr Kirill Veselkov, from the Department of Surgery & Cancer at Imperial delivered a keynote lecture at a conference on the ‘future of computing and food. It described personalised ‘food passports’, that could deliver tailor-made meals based on our environment, and our DNA.
The idea is to match genetic profiles, behavioural information and to a certain extent our history with the way we perceive food, so when we go into a restaurant the chef could prepare food tailored to our personal profile.
Although it looks like this may be some way off, anything that can be done to improve our diets makes things more sustainable.
