The Panel on Nutrition, Novel Foods and Food Allergens (NDA) deals with questions related to human nutrition, novel foods, nutrient sources, foods for special groups such as infant formulae, health claims on food products, dietary reference values, and food allergies.
NDA panel members are scientists from across Europe with expertise in:
- Nutritional epidemiology
- Human medicine
- Infant nutrition
- Dietary exposure assessment
- Food allergy and intolerance
- Food Technology
The NDA Panel assumed responsibility for the evaluation of nutrient sources added to food following the renewal of EFSA’s scientific panels in 2018.

The role of the NF Network is to provide a platform for the scientific cooperation between risk assessors of the EU Member States and EFSA in collaboration with the European Commission (EC), and to enhance risk assessment practices in the areas of novel foods including traditional foods from third countries in the framework of Regulation (EU) 2015/2283.
Specifically, the NF Network aims to:
- Facilitate exchange of information, discussion and consultation, and enhance collaboration in the area of novel foods;
- Harmonise methodology for searching for information and commenting on notifications for traditional foods from third countries, and harmonise the approach to streamline submission of duly reasoned safety objections for notifications of traditional foods from third countries;
- Avoid duplication of work
