The ILSI Research Foundation maintains two databases that provide free, open access, and unique scientific information to the public:
These databases are related to the ILSI Research Foundation’s work in the areas of biosafety, environmental risk assessment, nutrition, and food safety.
World Nutrient Databases for Dietary Studies
The World Nutrient Databases for Dietary Studies (WNDDS) enables users to explore, analyze, and filter FCDBs for countries and regions in a user-friendly format.
The ILSI Research Foundation’s Crop Composition Database (ILSI-CCDB) is a curated, open resource that provides data on the natural variability in composition (e.g., nutrients, anti-nutrients, and secondary metabolites) of agriculturally important, conventionally bred crops. These data can be applied to improve overall knowledge of human nutrition, inform the development of diets that promote the healthy growth of livestock, and improve global data sets related to food security and nutrition modeling.
Thanks to support from the ILSI-CCDB Working Group, Version 7.0 of the database launched on January 7, 2019. This data upload included updated information for all existing crops, a greatly expanded rice data set, as well as data on apple—the first fruit crop to be included in the database!
