Welcome to feed-food transfer models

Feed contaminants are substances that are not intentionally added to feed, but may be introduced in the feed via environmental contamination or during the manufacturing process. Humans can be exposed to these contaminants via consumption of products from animals that have ingested contaminated feed. Depending on the concentration of the contaminant in products like milk, eggs or (organ)meat, this exposure could result in adverse health effects in humans.
When feed is contaminated, it is important to know how much of the contaminant can end up in animal products that are intended for human consumption.

To estimate this, the transfer models on this website can be used. General and model specific information on how to use the models can be found under How to use.
