Working towards improvement and dissemination of food composition data in Europe

Eurofoods was formed by a group of interested scientists following a meeting in Wageningen, Netherlands in 1983 (Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism, 29 S:1 1985) which had identified a range of tasks to fulfil the objectives of improving compatibility of food compositional data and nutritional databases across Europe. The subsequent workshop in Norwich in the summer of 1985 provided a forum for reviewing progress and setting out new tasks for the future.

This report includes the papers, posters and reports of workshop sessions at the Norwich meeting. The papers have been extended to include significant material that became available after the meeting.

This publication was made possible by a grant from the International Foundation for Nutrition Research and Nutrition Education (ISFE Zurich). Klem, Oslo also provided some initial support of the editing.
