FSTA, also known as FSTA - Food Science and Technology Abstracts, is produced by IFIS (International Food Information Service).

FSTA is a bibliographic indexing and abstracting database, for scientific and technological research and information relating to food, beverages and nutrition. It contains over 1,150,000 indexed records, with full-text links where available.[1]

The database is used by researchers, industry practitioners and students.


In addition to over 4,000 active and historical journals, FSTA indexes books, trade publications, reviews, conference proceedings, reports, patents and standards. Updated weekly, records are indexed against the IFIS thesaurus, which contains over 10,700 food science keywords, created and structured into food-centric hierarchies.

With records dating back to 1969, FSTA contains information sources in 29 languages, sourced from publishers in over 50 countries.
