The project is based on the systematic determination of the nutrient content of animal and plant generic and processed foods produced and consumed in Turkey with advanced analyses techniques. During the project, a national system which is sustainable, original, and consisted of traceable data production-usage-and management was developed. A firm subscription system was established for supporting the sustainability of TürKomp while it provides reliable, nationally representative and standardised data. The valuable feedbacks of end users on TürKomp data will be appreciated as considerable information resource, while they will support to improve the system.
