The report describes methods for evaluating exposure to chemical substances in food. It is intended to provide an approach for estimating human exposure to toxic substances in food when those substances enter the food through environmental pathways. The methodology provides guidelines and methods in the form of a step-by-step approach. It allows the use of available residue data, but also provides methods for identification of important contamination pathways based on chemical uses and properties. Estimation methods for some contamination pathways are suggested as well as sources of information to assist the user.
