Food Enzyme Intake Model for brewing processes. 

FEIM_brewing 2022 updates the FEIM_brewing 2020. The updated calculator uses more recent consumption data from the EFSA Comprehensive Consumption database.

The Food Enzyme Intake Model (FEIM) is a tool for estimating chronic dietary exposure to food enzymes used in food processes. FEIM follows the methodology recommended in the Scientific Guidance for the submission of dossiers on Food Enzymes It has been developed on the basis of summary statistics of food consumption data collected from Member States (stored in the EFSA Comprehensive European Food Consumption Database). Each release uses the most recent consumption data from the Comprehensive Database.

FEIM comprises process-specific calculators, such as FEIM-baking or FEIM-brewing, which allow estimation of dietary exposure to food enzymes used in individual food manufacturing processes. Exposure results are reported at mean and high level for six population groups (e.g. infants, toddlers, adults, etc.) in different countries.
