Details of new updates in the eBASIS bioactives database have been published in Nutrients. The paper, which stems from work carried out in the EU BACCHUS project co-ordinated by Paul Finglas and Paul Kroon from IFR, includes the use of eBASIS composition data in the development of a model which allows bioactive compound intakes to be estimated using national food consumption data. This new tool will be of use to researchers and also small businesses in the development of health claims dossiers for submission to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
