Nordic Nutrition Recommendations 2004 – integrating nutrition and physical activity
The 4th edition of the Nordic Nutrition Recommendations, NNR 2004, gives the proportions between energy yielding nutrients, recommended daily intakes (RI) of certain vitamins and minerals, andExpand
Diet and particularly seafood are major sources of perfluorinated compounds in humans.
Results show that consumption of fish and shellfish is a major determinant of serum PFC concentrations, and significant relationships between estimated dietary intakes and serum concentrations have been demonstrated for the first time. Expand
Methodological challenges when monitoring the diet of pregnant women in a large study: experiences from the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa).
The outcome of the methodological choices indicates that the semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) strikes a reasonable balance between conflicting methodological and scientific interests, and that the approach may be of use to others planning to monitor diet in pregnancy cohorts.

Validity of a new food frequency questionnaire for pregnant women in the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa).
This validation study indicates that the MoBa FFQ produces reasonable valid intake estimates and is a valid tool to rank pregnant women according to low and high intakes of energy, nutrients and foods. Expand
Dietary exposure to brominated flame retardants correlates with male blood levels in a selected group of Norwegians with a wide range of seafood consumption.
Investigation of dietary exposure and serum levels of polybrominated diphenyl ethers and hexabromocyclodododecane in a group of Norwegians with a wide range of seafood consumption found significant but weak correlations were found, indicating that other sources in addition to diet need to be addressed.

Nitrate in vegetables Scientific Opinion of the Panel on Contaminants in the Food chain 1
SUMMARY Nitrate is a naturally occurring compound that is part of the nitrogen cycle, as well as an approved food additive. It plays an important role in the nutrition and function of plants. NitrateExpand
Dietary exposure to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural from Norwegian food and correlations with urine metabolites of short-term exposure.
The HMF content in Norwegian food items was determined and the dietary intake of HMF was estimated in 53 volunteers by means of 24h dietary recall and there was a significant correlation between the estimated HMF intake and urinary HMFA. Expand
Marine biotoxins in shellfish - okadaic acid and analogues 1 Scientific Opinion of the Panel on Contaminants in the Food chain
Okadaic acid and its analogues, the dinophysis toxins (DTX1, DTX2, and DTX3), together form the group of OA-toxins, which cause Diarrhoeic Shellfish Poisoning (DSP), which is characterised by symptoms such as diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Expand
Levels of ochratoxin A in blood from Norwegian and Swedish blood donors and their possible correlation with food consumption.
Consumption of several foods, including cereal products, wine, beer and pork, were to some minor degree related to high plasma levels of ochratoxin A, and correlation analysis of combinations of two or more food categories did not result in any statistically significant correlation. Expand
Scientific Opinion on Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs) in Food
It was inappropriate to use these BMDLs to establish health based guidance values, and instead used a margin of exposure (MOE) approach for the health risk assessment, and the CONTAM Panel concluded that for BDE-47, -153 and -209 current dietary exposure in the EU does not raise a health concern.
