Food Safety

Chemical

We help ensure chemicals in food are safe for human consumption with the aid of cutting-edge technologies and predictive modelling techniques.

At Creme Global we create data, models and software to estimate aggregate and cumulative exposure to chemicals.

The word “chemicals” refers to different substances that can be present in food such as additives, flavourings, contaminants and pesticides.

The exposure analyses are based on surveys containing nationally representative and readily installed data about food consumption. Through intuitive, user-friendly interfaces, these data can be easily combined with other datasets regarding the chemicals’ concentrations, toxicological data, absorption and retention factors.

Our models to assess dietary exposure are based upon Monte Carlo simulations that capture the huge variety in the diet of a population and can handle different types of data, either single estimates or distributions. The results, calculated at subject level, can be broken down by groups of consumers and demographics.

Our customers use the results obtained from our models to make informed decisions on new regulations, use levels and maximum concentration levels to assure consumer safety.
