Effects of substances on humans and animals

Wageningen Food Safety Research studies the possible effects of substances and ingredients in foods to assess whether they are safe.


A safety assessment of the effects is a statutory step in registering any new foods and auxiliary materials used in agriculture. Wageningen Food Safety Research uses various techniques to measure the absorption, digestion and health effects of substances and products.

Fewer tests on animals

Our aim is to develop methods that are as good as or better than experiments on animals, so that we can help to reduce the need for animal testing.
