APPLIED SCIENCES 01/10/19 MIGHT: Statistical Methodology for Missing-Data Imputation in Food Composition Databases. This paper addresses the problem of missing data in food composition databases (FCDBs).

APPLIED SCIENCES 01/10/19 MIGHT: Statistical Methodology for Missing-Data Imputation in Food Composition Databases

The missing data can be either for selected foods or for specific components only. Most often, the problem is solved by human experts subjectively borrowing data from other FCDBs, for data estimation or imputation. Such an approach is not only time-consuming but may also lead to wrong decisions as the value of certain components in certain foods may vary from database to database due to differences in analytical methods.

To ease missing-data borrowing and increase the quality of missing-data selection, we propose a new computer-based methodology, named MIGHT - Missing Nutrient Value Imputation UsinG Null Hypothesis Testing, that enables optimal selection of missing data from different FCDBs. ►▼ Show Figures Figure 1. EFSA 04/09/19 Updating DRVs: job done, after 10 years and 34 nutrients. The publication this week of dietary reference values (DRVs) for sodium and chloride marks the end of ten years of work by EFSA’s nutrition scientists.

EFSA 04/09/19 Updating DRVs: job done, after 10 years and 34 nutrients

It started in 2009 after the European Commission asked EFSA to update values last set in the 1990s for macronutrients such as proteins and carbohydrates, and all vitamins and minerals. Many EFSA scientists have contributed to this achievement over the years. We asked the chairs and coordinators of two working groups to tell us more: Monika Neuhäuser-Berthold and Céline Dumas (vitamins); and Androniki ‘Ada’ Naska and Agnès de Sesmaisons-Lecarré (minerals).

Open Access funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Summary Background Few data are available on the supply and consumption of nutrients at the country level. Methods. TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF DENMARK 10/12/15 New and improved access to Danish food data. The National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark, has launched a new database for food data in Denmark.

TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF DENMARK 10/12/15 New and improved access to Danish food data

Fødevaredata, as the database is called, is a mobile-friendly replacement for a previous database. It contains updated information about the nutrient content of different foods, includes more foods than previously and gives database users new search options. Overviews of foods’ nutrient content have been produced in Denmark for more than 125 years. The first official nutrient tables were published in the 1980s. Since 2002, the National Food Institute has made these tables available via an online database.

Toronto, ON, M5S 3E2, Canada Available online 29 May 2013 Abstract Background As the availability of fortified foods expands, it is increasingly important to monitor risk of excessive nutrient intake. Objective To describe limitations in the estimation of nutrient intakes from voluntarily fortified foods from the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS 2004) and National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES 2007-08) for the purposes of evaluating fortification policies and practices.

Food composition data (FCD) are detailed sets of information on the nutritionally important components of foods and provide values for energy and nutrients including protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins and minerals and for other important food components such as fibre.

WIKIPEDIA - Food composition database.

The data are presented in food composition databases (FCDBs). In the UK, FCD is listed in tables known as The Chemical Composition of Foods, McCance and Widdowson (1940)[1] and in the first edition the authors stated that: ‘A knowledge of the chemical composition of foods is the first essential in the dietary treatment of disease or in any quantitative study of human nutrition’. This demonstrates the main reason for establishing FCD at that time. Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS), Dar es Salaam – Tanzania - NOV 2008 - Tanzania food composition ta. This comprehensive document provides detailed information on 47 nutrients in over 400 commonly consumed Tanzanian foods and local dishes.

Created by a collaborative effort of the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences, the Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre, and the Harvard School of Public Health, these food composition tables will be useful to scientists seeking to better understand and analyze Tanzanians’ dietary intake, as well as to nutrition practitioners and food manufacturers seeking to develop healthier recipes and foods.

The names of all the foods and dishes have been translated into Kiswahili, French, and Portuguese, to facilitate their wider distribution in sub-Saharan countries.

Knowledge of varietal differences can therefore mean the difference between nutrient adequacy and inadequacy.
