Nutritionists and Dietitians available in Jinitto

At Jinitto we only accept nutritionists awarded a recognized qualification by the leading nutrition bodies.

We also preselect those bodies to make sure they require from their applicants:

  • Proof of competence (wich we currently set at at least a Level 6 in a relevant field OR competencies of the National Occupational Standards)
  • Adherance to a strict code of ethics and standards
  • A professional insurance

Nutritionist is actually a broad term and encompass the below:

1. Dieteticians

Dieteticians are qualified health professionals, who as well as providing general health advice, can also work with people with special dietary needs due to health conditions such as coeliac disease.
By law, they have to be registered and regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

2. Nutritional Therapists

They identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. They take into account the unique dietary needs of each individual and often work with chronic conditions such as allergies, digestive and bowel disorders, hormonal imbalances and the overweight.
At Jinitto, we require their registration with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and favor those who are member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT).

3. Nutritionists

Nutritionists have an understanding of the scientific base of nutrition and provide evidence-based information about the impacts of food and nutrition on the health and well-being of humans and animals. A nutritionist should be able to provide information about food and healthy eating, but not about special diets for medical conditions.
At Jinitto, we currently only accept Nutritionists registered with the Association for Nutrition (AfN)
Their title is either Full Registrants (RNutrs or RPHNutrs) or Associate Registrants (ANutr or APHNutr) depending if they have more or less than 3 years of professional experience.

Bear in mind that the qualifications are generalist, so you might want to look for professionals in your area of interest for the most pointed questions.
