Risk assessment of caffeine exposure from multiple sources

Report no:

Ordered:

Publishing: 15.03.2021

 
 

Key message:

The overall aim is to examine whether the total caffeine exposure from multiple sources constitutes a health risk to the Norwegian population.

In our daily lives, we are exposed to caffeine from several sources. Food, dietary supplements and personal care products are examples of potential caffeine sources. Estimations of the Norwegian population’s total caffeine exposure therefore needs to include multiple sources.

With this background, the Panel on Food Additives, Flavourings, Processing Aids, Materials in Contact with Food, and Cosmetics of the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food and Environment (VKM) has self-initiated a risk assessment of caffeine including caffeine exposure estimates from multiple sources.

The assessment is scheduled for publication March 2021.
