ABSTRACT
The article is mainly devoted to the proposal of the new indicators of food quality. There are presented certain philosophical considerations connected with food quality and safety. Food safety is discussed in relation to the natural and genetically modified raw materials used for its production. There are also presented the principles of the old and new nutritional pyramids. However, the main problem is concentrated on the proposal of the new indicators of food quality. Four new indicators of food quality are presented: opioid activity, antioxidative activity, allergic activity and sensory activity. The idea of this conception is explained on the example of the opioid activity of milk and milk products. The conclusion is that the evaluation of food quality/safety should concern also components with specific biological activity.
