Activities of the ASEAN Network of Food Data System (ASEANFOODS)
Asia is the largest continent with a population of more than 2 billion. Within its subregions, great diversity exists in its socio-economic development, culture and lifestyle including food consumption patterns, beliefs and habits. As a result of this diversity, each region is now responsible for developing its own food composition data system while maintaining a flow of information between subregions via the ASEAN Network of Food Data System. This paper discusses the network and is meant to serve as a source of information for users worldwide.
