Hi Ri-Ann and everyone,

I would like to clarify our business model: we aim to collaborate with food and supplement companies to make preventative health testing and personalized nutrition services more accessible and affordable. We believe that collaboration between the food and supplement industry and consumers is essential to enhance our understanding of nutrition on a personal level. Rest assured, no private information will be resold to any businesses or partners.

This is a crowdsourcing initiative to contribute to the knowledge base of how food and supplements affect individuals.

Happy to answer any further questions.

Sounds interesting! How many of those “reference meals” are participants expected to eat?

@ejain The study lasts for 14 days overall. There are 6 reference meals which are expected to be consumed during that period. For the remaining meals, you are expected to follow your typical diet. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

The six reference meals will replace your breakfasts for 6 days.

Great to see this here. Are the study results shared with the participants? What’s the data access/data return policy?

Yes, study results are shared with participants after the trial. We ensure full data access and return, exporting your data anytime by contacting study@tastermonial.com. Each app user’s data is owned by them, and we are required to provide you with a .csv export upon request. We are working on automating this process for your convenience. Our privacy policy is currently being revised with a legal expert to include more details on data return and access.
