Dr. James T. Heimbach, president of JHeimbach LLC food and nutrition consulting, is an internationally recognized expert in food and nutrition and the evaluation of the safety of new food ingredients. His services include strategic planning; management of GRAS determinations and New Dietary Ingredient notifications; advice on FDA, USDA, and FTC regulatory issues; and risk assessment. He consults on national and international issues regarding food safety and risk assessment and develops regulatory strategy positions. He has managed GRAS determinations for more than one hundred new ingredients, including infant-formula ingredients, probiotics, and products of biotechnology. He has also served on a number of GRAS Expert Panels and other safety-review boards.

Formerly a Principal of Environ International Corporation, Dr. Heimbach was the Chief Operating Officer of Technical Assessment Systems and TAS International at the time of their merger with ENVIRON. Prior to joining TAS, Dr. Heimbach was the Associate Administrator of the Human Nutrition Information Service, an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
