New Tool to Calculate Exposure to Food Additives - EFSA

Printer-friendly version

EFSA has launched a new tool to allow applicants to make their own estimates of exposure to food additives.

The Food Additives Intake Model (FAIM) is based on food consumption data collected by Member States for population groups. It allows calculation of exposure to new food additives or to additives that are already authorised but for which a new used is proposed. It can also be used for other areas of EFSA’s work, such as novel foods.
