Associated EuroFIR e-book collection
EuroFIR AISBL as publisher and the national compiler organisations as content provider have jointly produced a number of e-books. This collaboration enables to present the tables in both the country’s national language and in English, allowing an easy cross-national use of the tables. The e-books collection is intended to complement existing formats of food composition tables such as printed and online tables but with the added value of being accessible without the need of an Internet connection or of carrying and using large books. Their standardised and best available content is provided in a user-friendly way and can be easily used to build up a personal library on food composition tables, according to the individual need. FCDBs which have an accompanying e-book are denoted with a +++.
