Metabolomics as a new technique for nutritional claims discovery and validation

Issue 2 2015  •  23 April 2015  •  Claudio Luchinat and Claudio Santucci, CERM (Magnetic Resonance Center), University of Florence and Leonardo Tenori, FiorGen Foundation

Metabolites are the final products of cellular activities and their levels in a living organism can change according to genetic or environmental factors. The set of metabolites synthesised by a biological system is called ‘metabolome’. Metabolomics is a further ‘omics’ discipline which deals with the analysis of metabolic responses of living systems to genetic modifications or pathophysiological stimuli. Metabolomics, as opposed to classical clinical analyses that are based on the quantification of a pre-defined set of analytes, allows monitoring of global changes in metabolic patterns/pathways and provides a global scenario of modifications in a biological system that could be due to complex interactions between genes and environment…
