Nutrigenomics—the study of which foods best relate to our genes and how to prepare them to support our health—could forever change the way we eat.
How genes interact with certain foods to produce various types of proteins that help our body function properly is the heart of our kitchen. To help categorize these key ingredients, M.I.S.E. is the acronym we use to guide you through essential food groups and the function each serves in your body. The French culinary term mise en place refers to having all of your ingredients prepped—having "everything in place"—before you begin to cook. This quick overview of the roles of your essential ingredients will help you begin to do just that.
The Genomic Kitchen M.I.S.E. toolbox is comprised of four food categories. Ingredients from each category support the work of master genes to manage inflammation, oxidative stress, blood sugar and fats. Our four categories are Master Ingredients, Influencer Ingredients, Super Food Ingredients and Enabler Ingredients.
