Nutritional analysis of across horticultural commodities
Australia currently lacks up-to-date food composition data for many horticulture commodities, so this project is providing new composition data that reflects current growing conditions.
This information will improve the ability of the Australian horticulture sector to promote the nutritional benefits of produce and assist consumers and health professionals to identify sources of key nutrients.
The project team will develop a sampling plan in liaison with Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) for updating the Australian Food Composition Database with accurate, reliable and representative information. This includes calculating the percentage of the daily intake for nutrients and energy that will be obtained from consuming one serving of the food.
