Abstract Nutrigenomics research promises a future in which health risks of different diets can be exactly calculated on a personal basis. This seems great, but we need to consider how this will change our ideas about eating and health, and reflect on the ethical consequences of such a change. Therefore normative assumptions are compared within nutrigenomics research with norms about food, genes and health in everyday life.
