Food Safety Assessment

A food safety scientist would like to learn the collective wisdom on an exposure assessment detail.

SciPinion is proud to announce our first SciPoll! So what is a SciPoll?

A SciPoll is designed to quickly assess the prevailing wisdom on a specialized niche topic and should take less than 1 minute of your time to answer and be something you can answer without having to do any reading or research.

If you don’t know the answer, then don’t worry about taking the time to research the topic, there will be more SciPolls in the future. The SciPoll is designed to reach the experts with working knowledge of the subject matter quickly - so why participate?

SciPoll’s are meant to benefit the scientific community, scientists helping fellow scientists, SciPinion facilitating the process and distributing the results free of charge. There is no pay for these SciPolls, unlike our paid SciPis which require a significant time commitment. However, your insights can be a huge benefit to others who need this insight and some day you may benefit as well from others’ insights. This can be your way of paying it forward.

Now for the good stuff - the question for this month’s SciPoll is:

When conducting food risk assessments, what should be the default intake value (in terms of percentile) used to guide the risk assessments for adverse outcomes assessed for both acute and chronic exposure?

All responses are completely anonymous. Please take part. Together, we can learn from each other and advance science.
