Literature Review Linking Food Safety and Nutrition

This report provides an overview of cross-pathways linking food safety/foodborne illness and nutrition and their shared impacts on health while highlighting research gaps and opportunities for intervention. This body of evidence is meant to support the development of a framework linking food safety and nutrition, as part of Feed the Future and EatSafe programming. 

The review specifically focuses on the health implications of food safety on nutrition-relevant outcomes. In this context, food safety includes acute and long-term physiological impacts. Health-related nutrition outcomes considered include gut health, nutrient absorption, growth, and development outcomes, as well as outcomes related to metabolic and perinatal development.
