Nutrino, a San Francisco, CA- and Tel Aviv-based provider of nutrition-related data services and analytics technology, completed an $8m Series A funding round.
The round brings total funding raised to $10m. Pereg Ventures, Nielsen Ventures and Gandyr Group joined existing investors – including the New York Angels group, which led Nutrino’s seed round.
The company intends to use the funds to its services across the digital health sector and sign additional partnerships.
Led by CEO Yael Glassman, Nutrino provides an advanced platform and comprehensive food database that enable companies in the fields to improve the success of their products and programs, understand populations and eating patterns, and identify new areas of opportunity.
The company uses AI and machine learning to understand individual responses to particular foods via feedback from wearables and other data-points. These contextual insights allow the company to define an individual’s FoodPrint™, the digital signature of how food affects a person’s body.
The database, which collates data from millions of food items globally, is currently used by companies in industries from food & beverages to digital health, fitness and beyond.
