Introduction to the ePlantLIBRA database Workshop: Presentations available

ePlantLIBRA Bioactive compounds in plant food supplements database

Wednesday, 26th March 2014

The newly developed ePlantLIBRA database is a comprehensive and searchable database, with up-to-date coherent and validated scientific information on Plant Food Supplement (PFS) bioactive compounds, with putative health benefits and adverse effects, and contaminants and residues. It is the only web-based database available compiling peer reviewed publications and case studies on PFS. A user-friendly, efficient and flexible interface has been developed for searching, extracting, and exporting the data, including links to the original references. This novel database is a powerful source of information on PFS for use by food industry, food authorities, policy-makers, regulators, health professionals and researchers.
