New Zealand Total Diet Survey

May 24, 2018 at 1:06 PM

New Zealand Food Safety (a unit of the Ministry for Primary Industries) has today published the results for the 2016 New Zealand Total Diet Study (TDS), which shows the food New Zealanders eat has a high level of safety in regard to chemical hazards which might be present in the food supply.  Exposure to agricultural chemicals and contaminants from food remains low, and for the first time in 2 decades, our dietary intake of iodine is sufficient for good health.
