Daniel TOMÉ is Honorarium Professor in Human Nutrition in Paris (France). He has held a long-standing position as researcher and professor at INRAE and AgroParisTech. His research interests are protein, amino acid and energy requirements and metabolism and the capacity of protein and amino acid supply to fulfil their biological functions and meet human nutritional needs. This research has contributed to understanding the role of amino acid and energy nutrients on metabolic pathways and control of feeding behaviour and provided different criteria and methods for the evaluation of protein and food quality. Over the past 25 years, he was involved in committees and working groups for national and international authorities that deliver scientific advice and recommendations for nutrient requirements and food quality, particularly related to protein and amino acids.
