The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organisation (WHO), in November 2011, jointly published guidance for a harmonised Total Diet Study (TDS) approach. The organisations concluded that, together with other dietary surveillance programmes, TDS was an effective tool to estimate population dietary exposure to both harmful and beneficial chemicals across the overall diet. The guidance proposes general principles for harmonising TDS methods internationally, which if applied in Europe would provide comparable data on dietary exposure to chemicals in food.
