  3. 3. 4 ! Systematic generation and compilation of food composition data in ASEAN have been carried out for several decades " efforts of individual countries to meet the needs of food and nutrition activities ! Further impetus were provided with the establishment of International Network of Food Data Systems (INFOODS) by FAO in 1984 " a worldwide network to improve the quality, availability, reliability and use of food composition data ! INFOODS is organized into several regional data centres " including ASEANFOODS

  12. 12. 13 ! Attended by key personnel carrying out generation and compilation of food composition data in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam " focused on developing a system for quality evaluation of FCT/FCDB ! System was based on 12 criteria and several sub- criteria ! Used to evaluate 8 existing FCT/FCDs from 5 countries ! Based on the evaluation, challenges and issues within each country and across the countries which participated were identified ! There was a general consensus that the nutrients covered in the FCTs was a major limitation
  13. 13. 14 ! Participants also selected and prioritized the list of nutrients which are commended to be included in the national FCDB ! In cognizance of the current health problems and issues, there was general consensus that data for the following priority nutrients are needed " fatty acids (saturated, polyunsaturated, monounsaturated) and total sugars !The system can be used for evaluating otherThe system can be used for evaluating otherThe system can be used for evaluating otherThe system can be used for evaluating other FCT/FCDBs in theFCT/FCDBs in theFCT/FCDBs in theFCT/FCDBs in the futurefuturefuturefuture !System will be submitted to INFOODS for consideration to be included in the INFOODS Guidelines

  15. 15. 16 ! Follow-up on the roundtable discussion held in December 2015 ! Discussed various approaches to improving available FCDs " including sampling and analytical methodologies ! A sustainable system to enable a long term programme to carry generation and compilation of FCD should be established in each country !

Participants briefed on the protocols for compiling FCDB from data borrowed from other sources ! Nutrient composition of pre-packaged foods are urgently needed as they are not available or incomplete in FCDBs ! As the food manufacturers are in possession of these data, it was agreed to collaborate with them to obtain data for inclusion into national FCDBs !

  19. 19. 20 ! A great deal remains to be done to improve and expand the food composition data in ASEAN ! Some countries have yet to establish a FCD programme, " existing FCTs/FCDBs have large data gaps ! A long term programme for generation and compilation of quality FCD should be established in each country " Various challenges exist, including lack of adequate funding ! ASEANFOODS should continue to play an important role as a coordinating network ! to provide technical support and enable sharing of experiences !
