Meet the Author

The Senate Commission on Food Safety of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) advises parliaments and public authorities at their request and also acts independently to address questions of food safety. Priority is given to issues relating to the safety of foods, additives, food supplements and novel processing methods. Commission statements are based solely on a scientific perspective. The 20 selected members come from Germany and other European countries
