About the event

In a continuously evolving food word, Risk-Benefit Assessment of Foods (RBA) plays a key role in understanding the impact of dietary practices on human health. This discipline integrates the latest scientific advancements in nutrition, toxicology and microbiology to comprehensively assess the adverse and beneficial health effects associated with different food consumed. RBA has emerged in the 2000s and has undergone continuous development with now more than 200 RBA performed word widely. 

Our one-hour webinar aims to provide a comprehensive update on Risk-Benefit Assessment of Foods and discuss the current needs and limitations to launch an international survey. We will introduce the ILSI Europe Food Contaminants Task Force and the Risk Benefit Assesment of Foods Expert Group, explain what is RBA and present the latest developments.  

Whether you're a researcher, involved in decision making process, working in industry or health-conscious consumer, this webinar will offer insights into the latest developments in food safety and nutrition.
