Nutritional composition studies that assess similarities and differences of levels of important nutrients and anti-nutrients are an essential part of the safety assessment of new crop varieties that are used as food and feed.
Managed by the Agriculture & Food Systems Institute (AFSI), the AFSI Crop Composition Database (AFSI CCDB) contains crop composition data obtained from studies conducted over a number of years at worldwide locations. The data it contains provides insight into the natural variability of the nutritional composition of conventional crops.
