FoodRisk.orgclose

Description

Foodrisk.org is a metadatabase of tools and models for food safety professionals in industry, academia, and government. It was established to be a “one-stop shop” for the risk analysis community to find access to a number of tools, data, analysis, and reports to aid them in conducting risk analysis. It is also home to the Interagency Risk Assessment Consortium (IRAC) and the Food Safety and the Food Safety Risk Analysis Network for the Americas (FSRisk). FoodRisk.org facilitates the transfer of PC-based tools to web-based tools, so that they are freely available to the risk analysis community.

Food Commodity Intake Database (FCID)close

Description

The Food Commodity Intake Database (FCID) calculates consumption levels of EPA-defined food commodities using data from the What We Eat in America (WWEIA, 1999-2008) and the Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals (CSFII, 1994-1996 and 1998) surveys. This application consists of two main parts: a recipe search and a consumption calculator.

The application was developed by the EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) to improve the utility of the WWEIA food consumption survey for dietary exposure assessment. The tool was converted into a web application by JIFSAN, in collaboration with the EPA.
