The project summarizes data on the chemical content of food from Icelandic agriculture and sheds light on the uniqueness and importance of domestic production. Chemical content refers to nutrients, contaminants and antioxidants.

All available national sources will be obtained and reviewed. Relevant foreign data will also be examined, but in recent years there have been interesting results on the chemical content of food in the northern regions. The project began in 2020 and will end in 2021. The sponsor is the Agricultural Productivity Fund.
