SAFEFOODS, A new integrated risk analysis approach for foods

Description

SAFEFOODS consist of several work-packages where the National Food Institute participates in WP 3 – Quantitative Risk Assessment of Combined Exposure to Food Contaminants and Natural Toxins.

In this WP the final goal is to determine the health impact of human exposure to combinations of food contaminants (pesticides, mycotoxins) and natural toxins.

To fulfil this goal we will develop a model for integrating exposure and effect into a quantitative risk assessment model. The exposure will be estimated using a model for probabilistic assessment of human exposure. The Division for Nutrition and the Division of Food Chemistry participate in this project by delivering consumption and residue data and carry out probabilistic modelling for e.g. pesticides.
