Refinement of dietary exposure assessment using origin-related scenarios

Global sourcing of food may lead to variability in concentrations of contaminants or pesticide residues. It would be important to incorporate origin influences in dietary exposure assessment. Hence, the inclusion of origin information can refine exposure assessment.

This paper aims to use available data on substance concentrations grouped by geographical food origin to study the influence of origin on standard deterministic dietary exposure assessment. Based on case studies, the authors investigated possible origin influences in dietary exposure assessment.
