    Abstract

    The Monte Carlo project was established to allow an international collaborative effort to define conceptual models for food chemical and nutrient exposure, to define and validate the software code to govern these models, to provide new or reconstructed databases for validation studies, and to use the new software code to complete validation modelling. Models were considered valid when they provided exposure estimates (ea) that could be shown not to underestimate the true exposure (eb), but at the same time are more realistic than the currently used conservative estimates (ec). Thus, validation required eb ¿ ea
