Risk/benefit communication about food – a systematic review of the literature
Journal Article 2015
Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition 2015; published online. Commissioned by the Consumer Science Task Force.
 
Considerations on an Approach for Establishing a Framework for Bioactive Food Components
Journal Article
Bioactive food components have shown potential health benefits for more than a decade. Currently there are no recommended levels of intake [i.e., Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs)] as there are for nutrients and fiber.
 
Fortification and Health: Opportunities and Challenges
Journal Article
This article is a summary of a symposium presented at the ASN Scientific Sessions and Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology 2014 on current issues involving fortification focusing primarily on the United States and Canada and recommendations for the development of responsible fortification practices to ensure their safety and effectiveness
 
Partitioning of Dietary Metal Intake—A Metal Dietary Exposure Screening Tool
Journal Article
Detection of heavy metals at trace or higher levels in foods and food ingredients is not unexpected given the widespread unavoidable presence of several metals in nature, coupled with advancement in analytical methods and lowering limits of detection. To assist risk managers with a rapid risk assessment when facing these situations, a metal dietary exposure screening tool (MDEST) was developed.
