This is an interesting development for anyone in the field of nutrition. By being able to monitor the diet of a client, we can help them fulfil their nutrition goals……

The five-minute test, developed by researchers at Imperial College London, Newcastle University, and Aberystwyth University, can test for fat, sugar, fibre, and protein in urine samples to determine how much of the respective nutrients a person  has (or has not) eaten. The test can also tell whether a person is eating red meat, chicken, fish, and fruits and vegetables.
