Dietary exposure analysis

Estimate intake patterns and chronic dietary exposure

In the realm of food safety, understanding the potential exposure to substances within food products is paramount. This applies to any market in the world. Biosafe, leveraging cutting-edge tools like the European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) DietEx or the Food Enzyme Intake Model (FEIM), offers comprehensive Dietary Exposure Analysis services in the EU and beyond. Our goal is to provide accurate assessments that inform safety evaluations and support regulatory compliance, ensuring your products meet the highest standards of consumer safety.

Why Dietary Exposure Analysis?


Dietary Exposure Analysis is essential for evaluating the potential intake of chemicals, additives, or novel ingredients present in food and how they might affect different populations. This analysis is crucial for:

  • Supporting the safety assessment of food and feed products.
  • Informing risk management decisions and regulatory submissions.
  • Ensuring products comply with established safety thresholds.

Precision and reliability with EFSA's DietEx and FEIM

DietEx and FEIM, developed by EFSA, are sophisticated tools designed for the accurate assessment of dietary exposure to substances from food consumption. Their features include:

  • Comprehensive consumption data across various European countries, age groups, and special populations.
  • The ability to model chronic dietary exposure for substances used across multiple food manufacturing processes.
  • Integration with EFSA’s comprehensive European Food Consumption Database for precise exposure estimates.
