Extending eBASIS to study habitual intakes of bioactive compounds in the diet

eBASIS is a unique database that contains critically evaluated published data on the content and biological effects of bioactive constituents in plant foods and an up-to-date list of plant and plant part names in 15 EU languages.

Objectives

  • Further extend and enhance eBASIS with additional composition and bio-effects data on polyphenols and bioactive peptides from fruits, vegetables and meats
  • Estimate the distribution of intakes of selected polyphenols and bioactive peptides from foods and/or nutritional supplements in Europe using relevant national food consumption survey data and eBASIS
  • Estimate the potential increase in consumption of selected bioactives from novel foods with added/enhanced functional ingredients
