EFSA updated “DRV Finder” interactive tool

We would like to inform you that EFSA has just published two scientific opinions on the nutrients sodium and chloride and updated the “DRV Finder” in the process. For more information, please read the news

For those who are not familiar with it yet, the DRV Finder is an interactive tool that gives quick and easy access to EFSA’s Dietary Reference Values for nutrients. It is intended for end users of these values, such as nutrition and health professionals, risk managers, policy-makers, food manufacturers and scientists to retrieve EFSA DRVs in a way that fit their purpose. It is also meant to accompany/replace the downloading of PDF statistic reports (which are highly downloaded as figures show) helping the interested party in retrieving, accessing and downloading data in a much leaner process.  

The interactive tool, originally in English, has been also translated into Italian, French and German  - which are the additional official EU languages of EFSA – and other requested languages (i.e. Spanish, Estonian, Greek, Lithuanian and Czech). 

 

In addition, EFSA has prepared a series of short videos and an animated GIF that can be shared online to further promote the topic, together with some proposed key messages – translated in all the available languages of the DRV Finder tailored for social media that you can find in attachment. You can download the full Communication package from our Adobe folder here
