In the UK, Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals to be statutorily regulated, and governed by an ethical code, to ensure that they always work to the highest standard. The title dietitian can only be used by those appropriately trained professionals who have registered with the Health Professions Council.

A nutritionist, unlike a dietitian, is not currently a protected term. Anyone in the UK can refer to himself or herself as a nutritionist without any formal qualifications. Different organisations promoting holistic and alternative therapies may use their own criteria to define a nutritionist. The Nutrition Society of the UK accredits nutritionists, conferring the titles Associate Nutritionist (ANutr), Associate Public Health Nutritionist (APHNutr), Registered Nutritionist, (R Nutr.), and Registered Public Health Nutritionist (RPHNutr).
