Live Microbe Data and How to Submit to the Global Branded Food Products Database
February 27, 2023
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
The partners for the USDA Global Branded Food Products Database have made it possible for food manufacturers to contribute to the Database information on live microbes creating the opportunity to advance new health research.
Food manufacturers can now include information on the amount of beneficial live microbes present in food products, specify the level (low, medium or high) of microbes and optionally indicate the microbe species. These data will support research on associations between beneficial live dietary microbes and health when linked to biomarkers of health and data on health outcomes.
This webinar will provide an overview of the rationale for inclusion of dietary microbes, USDA’s data validation process, how to access the data in the Global Branded Foods Products Database and how manufacturers can share live microbe data through the Global Data Synchronization Network.
