Bojan Stojnić, MSc

Graduated with MSc in Nutrition science from University of Zagreb Faculty of Food Technology and Biotechnology. Currently working on PhD thesis on subject of Nutrigenomics and Personalized nutrition in Spain. Former president of Croatian Association of Nutritionists – the first nutritionist organization in Croatia – whose members I share the goal of promoting nutrition and protecting the nutritionist trade with. For many years I played basketball in the 2nd Croatian league, and I've also finished the Ironman triathlon.


Actively advocating usage of scientific method in understanding and explaining the world. Nutrition-wise I try to focus on the bigger picture instead of isolated, often irrelevant, dietary factors. I oppose dietary ideologies and obsessing about diet. I don't have a single dietary approach that would make me partial in interpreting literature. Instead, I base my advice on best available scientific literature. If new quality data presents itself, I am willing to put into context the existing knowledge and change my advice acordingly. I don't claim to have all the answers. It's essential to promote critical approach to nutrition information. I also highly emphasize the importance of psychological and social component of nutrition.

nutricionizam.hr project began in 2011 as a reaction to the rising number of nutritional misinformation in the media.
