French infant diet data from national survey made available

The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety, Anses, has published all the data from its Infant Total Diet Study (ITDS).

The ITDS was a national survey that aimed to estimate exposure to chemical contaminants in food for French children under the age of three. The survey team analysed 670 substances in 457 food samples that reflected consumption, covering 97% of diet.

They estimated the risk for 400 of those substances.

The published data is for concentrations of residues found in the food. It is available for free on the French government open platform for public data.
