- About IFIS
At a time when “fake news” has very real consequences, access to impartial and trustworthy information is more important than ever for those studying and working in the sciences of food and health.
Today, universities, research departments, corporate labs and government agencies from 158 countries trust IFIS to help them find reliable research and regulatory information – free from the white noise of irreputable sources or irrelevant content.
Here are just a few of the organisations that depend on IFIS resources to help power their work:
"I always recommend that faculty and students doing serious research in food science use FSTA®, to ensure a thorough search of the literature of the field and to take advantage of the specialized vocabulary that has been created to enhance precision. By searching FSTA instead of a multi-disciplinary “discovery” tool, they are less likely to overlook important journals and key articles written by experts."

"The Scotch Whisky Research Institute has been using FSTA for over 9 years as its core database for historical and emerging research in the food and beverage sector. […] This one-stop research tool for the food and beverage sector is a key component in supporting the work we undertake on behalf of the Scotch Whisky industry."

“In order to be as comprehensive as possible when I do a literature search related to food science, I always use FSTA in addition to other biological databases. I have found that FSTA invariably pulls up relevant material that is not available in other databases. None of my searches in the area of food science are complete without running them through FSTA.”
