Risk benefit analysis

Foods can possess both health risks and benefits. Risk-benefit analysis of foods is the scientific comparison of risk and benefits for at specific food in a certain situation, making it possible to predict the health-related consequences for the consumer.

The National Food Institute is conducting research in this area in order to optimise the quality and relevance of risk-benefit analyses which can be very useful in public sector consultancy.
