Nutritional research tools harmonized with EuroFIR recommendations used in food composition information systems Maria Glibetic, Mirjana Gurinovic, Agnes Kadvan, Jelena Milesevic, Marina Nikolic, Romana Novakovic EuroFIR NEXUS 2nd annual meeting and conference, March 5-6, 2013 Ljubljana, Slovenia
Definition Nutritional tools are valuable tools in food and nutrition research used to link basics of balanced nutrition with detailed performance benefits of carbohydrates, fat, protein, and essential vitamins and minerals. For instance: dietary intake assessment, nutritional daily planner, fiber calculator, BMI index, heart rate moderator, burn meter…etc.
Innovative technologies for measuring diet in nutritional epidemiology Review and evaluation of innovative technologies for measuring diet in nutritional epidemiology. Six main groups of innovative technologies were identified: Personal Digital Assistant Personal Digital Assistant Mobile-phone Mobile-phone Interactive computer Interactive computer Web-Camera- and tape-recorder Web-Camera- and tape-recorder Scan- and sensor–based technologies Scan- and sensor–based technologies EFSA project-Dietary monitoring tools for risk assessment –IMR-systematic review of the literature on dietary intake nutritional tools and methods of dietary data collection -in progress *Source: A-K Illner at al, Review and evaluation of innovative technologies for measuring diet in nutritional epidemiology, International Journal of Epidemiology 2012;41:1187–1203
Objective development of harmonized nutritional tools are of great importance for food composition information systems Due to identified shortfall of standardized methodology and tools in dietary surveys and information on traditional foods in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) countries and Balkan region, development of harmonized nutritional tools are of great importance for food composition information systems including traditional foods and overall nutrition research of the region. 02/06/2014Your name - Name of your institution (change this on Slide Master)4
Methods Development DIET-ASSESS with Open Data Base Connection (ODBC): Development DIET-ASSESS with Open Data Base Connection (ODBC): incorporation of any external food composition databases from EuroFIR Database Platform (27 databases harmonized with EuroFIR technical annex) use of e-Search function nutritional recommendation dataset : NutriRecQuest web tool (micronutrient recommendations), WHO /other recommendations and nutrition population goals Inputs: Inputs: - nutritional questionnaires (24HDR, FFQ, standards food record) - nutrition planning (recipes, meals, menus) Outputs Outputs: variable functions that use data from FCDB and micronutrient recommendations to compute 02/06/2014Your name - Name of your institution (change this on Slide Master)5

Results: DIET-ASSESS is connected with Serbian FCDB and EuroFIR- Nexus Regional FCDB (with traditional recipes) - Balkan platform, both using web based Food Comp Data Management (FCDM) application. On the other side, it retains NutriRecQuest- web tool, to enable nutritional assessment of planned menu/diet or dietary intake based on 24HRD.Outputs are reports (on personal, population, national level) on nutritive values of energy, macronutrients and micronutrients; food consumption etc.It allows graphic review and export to Excel format for further statistic analysis in SSP, SPSS, SPSS, etc. 02/06/2014Your name - Name of your institution (change this on Slide Master)7
