General information

Abstract

FoodEx2 is a comprehensive food classification and description system aimed at covering the need to describe food in data collections across different food safety domains. The system consists of descriptions of a large number of individual food items aggregated into food groups and broader food categories in a hierarchical parent-child relationship. Central to the system is a core list of food items or generic food descriptions that represent the minimum level of detail needed for intake or exposure assessments. More detailed terms can be found on the “extended list”. The current version has seven hierarchies: five domain-specific and a general purpose one available for the users, and a service hierarchy (master hierarchy) for the management of the terminology. Facets are used to add further detail to the information provided by the food list term. Facets are collections of additional terms describing properties and aspects of foods from various perspectives. See more...
