The Compendium is a database of botanicals that are reported to contain naturally-occurring substances of possible concern for human health when present in food. It is intended to help with the safety assessment of botanicals and botanical preparations that may be used in food, including supplements, by facilitating hazard identification.
The searchable database, which is still under development, will be expanded to include non-European botanical species. The complete version of the Compendium will be released end of 2019.
In order to disseminate the Compendium of Botanicals to a wider community, three sets of data can be downloaded:
a. the list of plant species, b. the composition data for the plant part of interest, c. the toxicity data/reported adverse effects.
