Abstract

The present series relates to the opinion of the committee on the wholesomeness of irradiated food. The report covers radiation chemistry, identification methods, nutritional and microbiological aspects, and toxicology. The committee has recommended that in the context of an overall assessment of the wholesomeness of irradiated foods only those specific irradiation doses and food classes should be endorsed that are indicated as appropriate, not only from a strict toxicological point of view, but also from a chemical, microbiological, nutritional and technological standpoint. The report lists the food classes and the respective radiation doses considered by the committee to be acceptable.
