Partitioning of Dietary Metal Intake—A Metal Dietary Exposure Screening Tool
Journal Article 12/24/2014
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.
