NanoRelease Food Additive
Supporting Methods to Measure Food Nanomaterials
Webinar to present Task Group White Papers
April 16 , 2013
www.riskscience.org
What is the issue being addressed?
Nanopowder
Dissolved
constituents (no
longer nano?)
Engineered nanomaterials (ENM) used/being
developed for food, beverages, supplements
to:
- increase nutrition
- increase food safety (packaging, shelf life)
- change physical/chemical properties
Some “traditional” processed food components
are nano too. Where do we focus the science
to address potential risk?
Methods to measure what nano characteristics
affect absorption as nanoparticles into the
body would greatly clarify where to focus
attention.

About the project
• 70+ multi-stakeholder experts collaborating for methods
development for oral exposure to ENM
• GOAL: Develop methods that distinguish which nanomaterials
do and do not persist to absorption from food.
 thus provide data that help clarify risk
 thus allow safer, sustainable improvements
OFFICIAL CHARGE: “Identify, evaluate, and develop
methods needed to confidently detect, characterize and
evaluate intentionally produced nanoparticles released
from food along the alimentary tract, as occurring through
direct food additives or indirect incorporation in food
through migration from food contact materials or
environmental contamination.”

Benefits of the project
• Continuous technical dialogue internationally
across key stakeholder experts about safe
development of food nanotech
• Public-private partnership allows balance of
views from academia, industry, government,
public interest organizations
• Secretariat (ILSI Research Foundation) facilitates
collaboration without backing any particular
stakeholder view.

State of the Science Team is an experienced, balanced multistakeholder set of experts who are writing a “state of the science”
report on: What do we know and need to know to measure and
understand the likelihood of nanomaterial uptake by the body?

INTERLABORATORY
TESTING GROUP
• Lab research experts currently being gathered
• OBJECTIVE: Develop or investigate standardization of existing methodologies
(adaptation and validation) with any necessary modifications
• Interlaboratory work plans will improve/develop methods for understanding
uptake, using (-) and (+) controls and selected ENM in modeled GI conditions
• ULTIMATE GOAL: promote standardization or scientific consensus on practical
methods for evaluating potential uptake of ENM from alimentary canal

Goal for this webinar
• Present high point findings of
the task groups
• Inform the State of the Science
team as they prepare their
summary
• Seek input from stakeholders
• Inform the Steering Committee
as they select methods to carry
forward

Suggested topics for feedback
Please note that the project goal is to
GOAL: Develop methods that distinguish which nanomaterials do
and do not persist to absorption from food.
 thus provide data that help clarify risk
 thus allow safer, sustainable improvements
For example, please help us inform the Steering Committee in their
task to
- Cover what needs to be covered to prepare to address this goal
- Narrow scope to practical and near-term methods improvement
- Select methods improvements to address
- Identify how to improve the methods
- Identify synergies and partnerships
