The standard regards food data as datasets covering: - identification, description and classification of foods including food ingredients, - qualitative and quantitative food properties that can be measured, calculated or estimated, - data quality values and other metadata, - specifications of methods used for obtaining these values, - references to sources for the information reported. This standard includes requirements on: - semantics and data structure for food data, - content of referenced controlled vocabularies, - XML encoding for interchange of food data. This standard does not include: - food description methods, - quality assessment methods, - content of controlled vocabularies, for example controlled vocabularies for nutrients, - database implementation.
