GenoPalate Mobile App - Release Notes
Ideal nutrient profile, based on you
Your results use peer-reviewed research in nutrigenetics to calculate your ideal intake for 23 nutrients based on your DNA. This includes whether you may benefit from a low, moderate, or high intake for macronutrients (carbohydrates, fats and protein) as well as micronutrients (vitamins and minerals).
These recommendations are designed to help you reach optimal health and prevent chronic disease.
Your food list
Finally, you’ll receive a personalized food list containing over 100 foods that best match your genetic-based nutrient needs. For example, if your genes suggest that you need high zinc and high vitamin B12 one of your suggested meats may be lean ground beef because it contains high amounts of zinc and B12.
Your list will cover 16 different food categories including your top starches, leafy vegetables, meats, fruits, and many more. These options will make it easy for you to shop and eat for the foods healthiest for you.

Don't forget to view your macronutrients page to see how your new calorie recommendation affected your results!

If you didn't receive an insight for alcohol sensitivity, then this release is for you. We've added additional genetic variants into our analysis so that more than 99% of our users will see a genetic result for alcohol in their mobile and web app. The language around these insights was also updated to describe your rate of alcohol metabolism rather than your sensitivity level to alcohol. If your results used to say “Likely Sensitive” or “Unlikely Sensitive,” you will now see “Slow Metabolizer” or “Normal Metabolizer.”

In today’s release, we’re giving the gluten, lactose, caffeine and alcohol pages a design refresh. This update makes it easier way to learn about your genes, what they do, and how they impact your health. However, genetics don’t always tell the whole story. That’s why we’ve also added a section about what non-genetic factors influence how sensitive you are to gluten, lactose, caffeine and alcohol. If one of your sensitivity results surprised you, these can help you pinpoint why so that you can better manage your sensitivities.
