Nutritionist Resource only lists nutritionists who are members of a recognised professional body or those who have sent us copies of their qualifications and insurance cover.

Nutritionists

Nutritionists most commonly work in industry, education or research jobs that require them to apply their scientific knowledge of food. Unlike ‘Dietitian’, ‘Nutritionist’ is not a protected title under statutory regulation and therefore anyone is able to refer to himself or herself as such, even if they do not posses adequate training and experience. However, there are various voluntary registers that have been developed for nutritionists who are qualified to provide general information about food but not advice about specific therapeutic diets.

Nutritional Therapists

Nutritional therapists tend to work on a one to one basis with clients with a focus on optimising health and alleviating the symptoms of many common ailments and chronic conditions such as digestive and bowel disorders, weight concerns etc.

Similarly to nutritionists, law does not regulate nutritional therapists, though there are various voluntary organisations that require proof of qualifications in order to be listed.
