The division’s research is inter-disciplinary and involves food safety as well as nutritional issues. The aim of our research is to further develop risk assessment and to gain knowledge about the association between food intake and eating habits and health, including the effect of interventions.
The division hosts monitoring data on nutrition, food chemistry and microbiology, including data generated by the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration. It is our ambition to increase the use of monitoring data for research purposes. For example, monitoring data combined with data from surveys on food intake can be used in exposure assessment and effect assessment of cumulative intake, using probabilistic as well as deterministic modelling for different population age groups.
