Using metabolomics to evaluate food intake: Applications in nutritional epidemiology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Improving dietary assessment is essential for modern nutritional epidemiology. This chapter discusses the potential of metabolomics for the identification of new biomarkers of intake and presents the first candidate biomarkers discovered using this approach. It then describes the challenges that lay ahead, including the validation of identified biomarkers, methodological improvements for accelerating biomarker identification, and the development of sharing tools for data and resources.
