Biomarker validation

More efficient nutritional assessments

myfood24 has been validated against a suite of independent nutrient reference measures, including urinary and plasma biomarkers as well as interview-led dietary recalls.

Biomarkers are the ‘gold standard’ reference measure and are more accurate than interview-led recalls, which are used for relative validity by other dietary assessment tools.

Our biomarker validation study found that myfood24 provides more efficient dietary assessments in comparison to interview-led recalls.
