  • The ÍSGEM database has not been updated in its entirety for about 10 years. However, certain parts of it have been updated.
  • The data presented here are based on a solid foundation, especially for unprocessed foods. However, it must be borne in mind that the chemical composition of food changes for a variety of reasons, such as the effects of feed, environmental factors, meat cutting methods and changed recipes of processed foods.
  • The ÍSGEM database has been used in the preparation of nutrition declarations for food packaging. In such cases, it is always necessary to weigh and assess whether the information is relevant. Food marketers are always responsible for ensuring that the information on food packaging is correct.
  • Matís does not guarantee the reliability of the data or its use in other forums.
