National Surveillance of Food and Contaminant Intake: The Danish Experience
In 1983 The National Food Agency established a food monitoring system in order to follow the content of nutrients and contaminants in foods in a systematic manner. When the data from this system are combined with the results from the national food consumption survey from 1985 it is possible to calculate the intake by the participants of both nutrients and contaminants. Also, it is possible to make an estimate of the maximum intake of food additives. Calculations like these are used as a basis for regulating food fortification and the use of food additives as well as establishing safe levels for the content of contaminants in foods.
