The BfR MEAL Study provides numerous points of possible collaboration for scientists and associations. Cooperation projects are therefore conceivable in a wide range of topic areas. Satellite studies could be conducted on further substance groups, for example, or tests could be performed on additional products that are currently not included in the food groups chosen for the BfR MEAL Study.
Existing cooperation projects
The Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) will use samples from the BfR MEAL Study to additionally test for uranium and other radionuclides.
The Max Rubner Institute (MRI) will update the German Nutrient Data Base (BLS). For this purpose, the nutrient profile of some foods needs to be completed. Samples from the BfR MEAL Study will therefore be used to test for dietary fibre, Vitamin B12 and other nutrients.
