Future Developments

Future developments in methodology are likely to use computing, digital, and Internet technology, such as videos of food eaten and online programs for self-reported intake. Use of Dictaphones and combinations of weighing and other recording equipment are also possible.

The number of foodstuffs available, particularly of manufactured foods and ready-made meals, will continue to increase, presenting challenges for those attempting to estimate nutrient intake. Nutrient databases will continue to be expanded and updated to incorporate newer food items and nutrient measurements available using improved analytical techniques.

In some populations more than 40% of individuals have been shown to consume supplements and as very few comprehensive databases of vitamin and mineral supplements exist these need to be developed, as supplements can make a major contribution to nutrient intakes.
