FoodRisk.orgclose

Description

Foodrisk.org is a metadatabase of tools and models for food safety professionals in industry, academia, and government. It was established to be a “one-stop shop” for the risk analysis community to find access to a number of tools, data, analysis, and reports to aid them in conducting risk analysis. It is also home to the Interagency Risk Assessment Consortium (IRAC) and the Food Safety and the Food Safety Risk Analysis Network for the Americas (FSRisk). FoodRisk.org facilitates the transfer of PC-based tools to web-based tools, so that they are freely available to the risk analysis community.

Food Commodity Intake Database (FCID)close

Description

The Food Commodity Intake Database (FCID) calculates consumption levels of EPA-defined food commodities using data from the What We Eat in America (WWEIA, 1999-2008) and the Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals (CSFII, 1994-1996 and 1998) surveys. This application consists of two main parts: a recipe search and a consumption calculator.

The application was developed by the EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) to improve the utility of the WWEIA food consumption survey for dietary exposure assessment. The tool was converted into a web application by JIFSAN, in collaboration with the EPA.

Produce Point of Origin (PPOD)close

Description

The Produce Point of Origin Database (PPOD) helps analysts quickly identify potential origins of produce-borne outbreaks by displaying transport data on food commodities specified by the FDA. Users can choose a commodity to view the commodity’s transport data, or they can choose a location and view the location’s transport data.

USDA Global Branded Food Products Database close

Description

The USDA Global Branded Food Products Database brings nutrient data on branded and private label foods to FoodData Central, a website where users can browse a database of foods to learn about their nutrient levels and composition. The Global Branded Food Products Database is made possible by a public-private partnership, which makes information from food industry data providers available to the public for use in research studies, food label regulatory efforts, and product development.

Partners collaborate to enlist participating brands and establish a flow of data from the data providers and FoodData Central.

PhyloPlus close

Description

This web application will create a phylogeny where user specified taxa will be added to a publicly available, peer reviewed molecular bacterial or archaeal phylogeny. This approach takes advantage of the comprehensive bacterial/archaeal molecular phylogenetic trees generated by Genome Taxonomy Database (GTDB), and allows users to submit their own customized set of bacterial or archaeal species that will be added to either of these phylogenies.
