There is an urgent need to better understand the actual safety significance of food contact materials (FCM) as a source of chemical exposure in humans. This workshop aims to identify the potential to incorporate various bioassays with the TTC for the identification and safety assessment of FCM, specifically focus on their suitability to address NIAS safety.
As consumers are often exposed to naturally occurring contaminants and process-related compounds in their diets, it is crucial to investigate how these compounds are formed in order to improve how we detect and measure them and to assess their safety. This seminar, organised by the ILSI Europe Process-Related Compounds Task Force (PRC TF) tackled subjects relating to such substances, particularly focusing on assessing their impact on human health.
During the last decade, a shift in the mind-set of experts in toxicology and related sciences has been noticeable towards a science which is no longer only based on deterministic whole-animal approaches. The different stakeholders in nutrition and food safety are however currently not aligned on when animal studies are mandatory or when they can be replaced by alternative approaches.
This symposium was specifically focused on clinical aspects and novel strategies developed to determine whether diet and nutrients have efficacy in individuals affected by dementia and other neurodegenerative conditions.
The workshop focused on placing the consumer at the heart of the EU food system, specifically regarding innovations in the fruits and vegetables sectors (Day 1). This was followed by a programme towards foresight and impact with the SUSFANS Stakeholder Core Group (Day 2).
