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 CEF Panel’s Statement on Exposure assessment of 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). Dietary data from the UK were included in FEIM when the UK was a member of the European Union.

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 different population groups (e.g. infants, toddlers, adults, etc.) in different countries.

FEIM can be accessed via the EFSA Knowledge Junction. It will be updated annually as further process-specific calculators are generated and adopted by the CEF Panel. Each release uses the most recent consumption data from the Comprehensive Database.
