    USDA.gov - United States Department of Agriculture

    In 1862, when President Abraham Lincoln founded the U.S. Department of Agriculture, he called it the "people's Department." In Lincoln's day, 48 percent of the people were farmers who needed good seeds and information to grow their crops. Today, USDA continues Lincoln's legacy by serving all Americans. USDA remains committed to helping America's farmers and ranchers. But we also do much more.... USDA leads the Federal anti-hunger effort with the Food Stamp, School Lunch, School Breakfast, and the WIC Programs. USDA is the steward of our nation's 192 million acres of national forests and rangelands. USDA is the country's largest conservation agency, encouraging voluntary efforts to protect soil, water, and wildlife on the 70 percent of America's lands that are in private hands. USDA brings housing, modern telecommunications, and safe drinking water to rural America. USDA is responsible for the safety of meat, poultry, and egg products. USDA is a research leader in everything from human nutrition to new crop technologies that allow us to grow more food and fiber using less water and pesticides. USDA helps ensure open markets for U.S. agricultural products and provides food aid to needy people overseas.

    Risk Assessment and Integrated Ochratoxin A (OTA) Management in Grapes and Wine - WINE - OCHRA RISK

    The world-wide occurrence of OTA contamination of raw agricultural products has been amply documented in a variety of plant products and recently OTA has been detected also in wine and grape juice. Fungi responsible for OTA presence were studied especially on cereals where Penicillium verrucosum and A. ochraceus are considered the main producers. Few studies carried out in EU countries on grape have shown that there is a great variability and a significant morphological and toxicological difference among Aspergillus and Penicillium species occurring on grapes; species associated with cereals seem absent. Surveys carried out on wine showed a higher OTA concentration in red versus white and rosé wines. A correlation with the latitude of the production region was also demonstrated: the further south the provenance, the more frequent the occurrence and the greater the concentration of OTA. Wine contribution to mean daily OTA intake cannot be considered negligible: wine alone could supply the diet of an average drinker with an OTA amount equal or even superior to the TDI recommended by the Scientific Committee on Food of the European Commission.

    Mycotoxin-Cluster and RTD-activities of Key Action1 under Programme1

    The consumer thinks of food as that which sustains life based on an emotional level. She/He is extremely concerned when learning that food is comprised of a number of chemicals placed there by Mother Nature herself. Consequently, she/he sometimes moves her/his attention from natural toxicity to toxicity. Natural toxins can be hazardous, in particular, when the diet is focused on consumption of certain foods. About 25% of the world's food crops are affected by mycotoxins every year (Mannon & Johnson 1985). The Council on Agricultural Sciences and Technology (CAST) estimated that in the US about US$ 20 million is lost annually on peanuts due to aflatoxin contamination, only (CAST 1989). The prevention and early detection of mycotoxin-contaminated raw materials is essential.

EUFIC directs its resources towards three broad areas: - Safety and quality of food and food products - Nutrition, diet and health - Application of biotechnology in the food chain EUFIC publishes a regular 4-page newsletter, FOOD TODAY, highlighting subjects of current interest. It also issues periodic reviews and leaflets on specific subjects (Food-borne Illnesses, 10 Tips for Healthy Eating, Carbohydrates and Nutrition, Food Additives, Understanding Obesity, etc.) All material published by EUFIC is based on peer reviewed scientific surveys and research. A number of publications, which cover a broad spectrum of subjects, are produced jointly with national and international organisations, recognised for their expertise.

    TECHNICAL COMMITTEE FOR JUICE AND JUICE PRODUCTS

    The TECHNICAL COMMITTEE FOR JUICE AND JUICE PRODUCTS has been formed as a non-profit scientific and educational committee to provide support to the Association of Official Chemists by providing government agencies and other interested parties, particularly regulated industries, with analytical information, expertise, and methods which have undergone interlaboratory testing and have been found to be scientifically reliable. It is expected that methods adopted by the Committee can be used by government and industry to determine compliance with government standards or product specifications as well as being useful for research and other applications. OBJECTIVES: Develop and adopt accurate methods for the analysis of juices and juice products. Facilitate collaborative testing of new analytical methods. Facilitate acceptance of methods as official AOAC methods. Improve communications among government, academic, industrial and private laboratory scientists working in the area of juice research. Recommend and acquire funding for development of new analytical methods. Work with the AOAC to publish a compendium of official juice and juice product analytical methods. Promote use of official methods of the Committee by all sectors in order to obtain the benefits of uniform use. Maintain cooperative arrangements with other state, national and international associations and societies to achieve uniformity in analytical methods. Membership is open to any person or organizational representative of a governmental agency, academia, professional association, private laboratory, or firm involved directly in the analysis of juice.

We want to tailor the scientific information to three categories of end users SMALL AND MEDIUM ENTERPRISES, CONSUMER GROUPS, HEALTH PROFESSIONALS by writing for each one in a different style and with A different perspective. We contact the scientists involved in EU projects, we ask them to give us their results and then we select the most interesting ones for our target groups. We disseminate these documents to end users through our European network : each national network leader disseminates the information through their three national networks -one for each target group.

    International HACCP Alliance

    The International HACCP Alliance, formerly the International Meat and Poultry HACCP Alliance, was formed in 1994 as a proactive step to assist the meat and poultry industry in preparing for mandatory HACCP. The founders of the HACCP Alliance recognized the need to standardize HACCP training efforts, develop a uniform position on implementing HACCP, and work cooperatively with USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and other regulatory agencies. Therefore, the HACCP Alliance has devoted the past few years to these activities. During this time, five standardized curricula have been developed, over 25 training programs have been accredited, and over 100 individuals have been approved as lead instructors. The HACCP Alliance membership includes over 120 members from nine countries representing industry associations, professional associations, educational foundations, universities, third party/private companies, and government cooperators. Members have striven to encourage the adoption of HACCP throughout the industry and to foster better communication and cooperation with USDA's FSIS and other governmental agencies worldwide.

    Institute of Food Science - BOVINE SPONGIFORM ENCEPHALOPATHY (BSE) AND VARIANT CREUTZFELDT-JAKOB DISEASE (vCJD) IN HUMANS

    BSE incidence: The continued dramatic year-on-year fall in the number of new cases of BSE in Great Britain (from the peak of 36,682 in 1992, to 14,302 in 1995, to 8,016 in 1996, to 4,312 in 1997, to 3,179 in 1998, to 2274 in 1999, and to 1,355 in 2000, is as forecast and on track to bring the epidemic to an end. Meanwhile, in addition to clinical cases in some European countries, testing by EU Member States has revealed numbers of cases in apparently healthy cattle, most likely resulting from feeding to cattle of UK mammalian MBM imported as pig and poultry feed prior to 1996. It is possible that cases may emerge in other countries which imported this material. WHO has stated that over 100 countries are at risk. The EU Commission publishes an updated table of incidence in EU countries, and the OIE maintains an updated world list, by countries.
