Familiar in vivo and in vitro pharmacological models widely used for proof-of-concept support standardized guideline testing for such disorders as metabolic syndrome— dyslipidemia, obesity/eating disorders, and diabetes; cardiovascular function—shock, hemorrhage, heart failure, hypertension, atherosclerosis; immune enhancement/suppression—inflammation, and arthritis; gastrointestinal disorders—ulcer, diarrhea, abdominal pain and bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, and emesis; central nervous system function—cognition/memory, insomnia, and pain; and osteoporosis, calcium supplementation, and bone loss, among others (ICH, 2000, 2005b) and provide a sound basis for clinical studies.

With these data in hand, safety for intended use, as required by the United States and global regulatory agencies, is dependent on the EDI being less than the ADI (WHO, 1989). In turn, the ADI is generally based on in vivo long-term preclinical toxicological studies, oftentimes in rodent, for which a No-Adverse-Effect Level (NOAEL) with a 100-fold safety factor accounting for the uncertainty in variance of species (10×) and individuals (10×) for human use is determined. Structure–activity relationships resulting from the known physical and chemical behaviors of functional groups incorporated into food additives and the duration of exposure are the basis for determining concern level and the degree of toxicological testing appropriate for the given food.
