The toxicological significance of xenobiotic metabolism.
These and similar data illustrate the usefulness of metabolic information in the specific context of the safety assessment of natural food flavours (JECFA 1987) by aiding the interpretation of toxicity tests and aiding the design of more relevant tests.
