ILSI US and Can Webpage Banner_Globally Harmonized Nutrients

Our Purpose

The Applications of Globally Harmonized Nutrients Research Portfolio focuses on facilitating the integration of standardized nutrient recommendations at the global, regional and local population levels. The leadership committee aims to lay this groundwork through the establishment of nutrient bioavailability algorithms. This activity is poised to drive advancements in food formulation and labeling, enable comparisons of nutrient intake across populations, inform policy development, and evaluate the sustainability of the global food system.
