The BfR MEAL Study: What´s in your food

In what quantities do we ingest desirable and undesirable substances on average through our food? Are certain foods more contaminated than others? And what health effects does the preparation method have on the food? The BfR MEAL Study helps to answer these and other questions.

Regionaler Einkauf

Regional purchases

The BfR MEAL Study intends to find out which substances and in what concentrations consumers living in Germany eat on a daily basis in their food. For this reason, the food prepared in the BfR MEAL kitchen is purchased all over Germany. To this end, two teams of buyers drive to four regions in Germany, each with three sample points in a metropolitan, provincial and rural area.

Kooperation mit dem BfS

Cooperation with the BfS

Because of its complexity, the BfR MEAL Study offers numerous connecting points for further satellite studies by external partners. For example, there is a cooperation with the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) where samples prepared in the BfR MEAL kitchen are analysed for radiation from radioactive elements such as uranium.
