EMFID platform was officially established in 2021 under the supervision of the World Health Organization in collaboration with Al-Quds University. EMFID is a collaboration of the Eastern Mediterranean countries designated to provide the first comprehensive food data of the region. Its aim is to provide standardized and up-to-date food composition data for the purposes of sustaining and improving healthcare, education, research, and policymaking. Standardized food composition tables, derived from the most widely consumed recipes in each country, represent the cornerstone for the food data analysis and presentation.
Currently, the platform provides a basic view of food items, recipes, and nutrients intake analysis as a web-view. Soon the mobile application will be developed and released.
