Intertek conducts food dietary exposure assessments or food intakes assessments to support safety evaluations of food additives, novel food ingredients, and other food-related substances.
Dietary exposure estimates are a critical aspect of the risk assessment process carried out by competent authorities for compounds such as food additive petitions, novel food submissions, enzyme approvals, GRAS determinations, and food contact material notifications. Estimating exposure to a dietary substance may not be limited only to intended food or beverage uses; consideration may also be warranted for existing authorised or GRAS uses, natural occurrence in foods comprising the regular human diet, and intake through food/dietary supplement consumption.
Ensuring that the approach taken is appropriate for your specific needs is paramount in order to position your application in the most advantageous position for approval. Intake strategies should take into account the sources of information available, background intakes (if any), and the potential to expand the intended uses of your ingredient, nutrient, or dietary substances at a later development stage.
Today, a global perspective is essential in gaining approval in multiple markets. Based on extensive global experience in conducting dietary intake estimates based on various modelling methods, Intertek's regulatory and scientific experts have an comprehensive understanding of the food industry's regulatory hurdles and can assist in developing a dietary exposure assessment strategy which is customized to each client’s needs.
