PMID:  10693017     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Food purchased throughout the United States during 1991-1997 under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Total Diet Study (TDS) program were analyzed for elements and radionuclides. The program is described with emphasis on food analysis and quality control, including independent interlaboratory exercises. Analytical results are summarized for Cd, Pb, Ni, As, Hg, Se, Cu, Zn, Mn, Fe, Mg, Ca, P, K, and Na and for 137Cs, 131I, 106Ru, and 90Sr. Concentration data are provided to expand the information base used to support assessments of the safety and nutritive value of the U.S. food supply and for their potential use in food composition databases. For selected foods, comparisons were made with past TDS results and with those reported in the literature. An extensive listing of the analytical data is available on the FDA CFSAN Website.
