To connect and blend different information stores regarding isotopic information, we propose an ISO-FOOD cosmology as an area metaphysics for portraying isotopic information inside Food Science. The ISO-FOOD cosmology comprises of metadata and provenance information that should be put away along with information components to depict isotopic estimations with all important data expected for future investigation. The new area has been connected with existing ontologies, like Units of Measurements Ontology, Food, Nutrient and the Bibliographic Ontology


Current isotopic datasets are distributed either in peer-looked into diaries or in the dim writing that is frequently inaccessible for general use. As every one of those scattered datasets on isotopes and related information gives explicit and extraordinary data, it's a good idea to bring together and interface them to make a solid incorporated store of food-related isotopic information. To accomplish this, in any case, a few deterrents should be survived. For example, each dataset utilizes its own characterization and ordering framework. Thus, the information from various datasets is dissipated and unharmonised, which makes its utilization by people and its fuse in data frameworks troublesome(Saguy et al., 2018).

To reuse the isotopic information and comparing information ordered and filed, the information should be coordinated following the Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability (FAIR) standards for logical information the board and stewardship. This likewise comes from the way that there is a popularity for empowering the exploration inside the space of isotopes for Food science as an advanced examination venture, to work with information revelation and backing new information, and to boost local area commitment. To make this conceivable, there is a necessity for interoperability, and that implies the capacity of information and instruments from heterogeneous sources to incorporate or cooperate with an insignificant exertion. One method for accomplishing this is by making each dataset open in a machine-clear arrangement, which can be acknowledged by improving the isotopic information with metadata and information on its provenance portraying its semantics. ( Heldman DR & Lund DB (2010).

The reason for supposed semantic information is to permit machines to comprehend and separate the data without the assistance of a human client. It depicts innovations and techniques that pass on the importance of the data. For instance, the Resource Description Framework is an internationally acknowledged structure for information and information portrayal that is decipherable and interpretable by machines. To improve isotopic information by semantics, a philosophy that depicts the isotopic space is required. This would empower harmonization among analysts and research facilities as well as permitting clients to store cosmology based information. In any case, having a metaphysics that depicts isotopic information is a difficult undertaking since it should comprise of the pertinent metadata and provenance information that would empower arrangement of isotopic information from assorted research regions, and permit information to be followed back to the genuine insightful labs to work with autonomous control surveys (Wang, 2014).

Applications requiring stable isotope proportion estimations of light components (hydrogen (H), carbon (C), nitrogen (N), oxygen (O), sulfur (S)) significantly affect topography, natural sciences, wrongdoing and game (crime scene investigation), wellbeing, personal satisfaction, environmental change, food realness and guideline. Recently, weighty isotopes, for example, Sr, Pb, Hg, Nd are being utilized in these kinds of investigations ( Carneiro et al., 2002)

However the current paper manages light isotopes alleged bio components, the methodology can be handily stretched out to forward thinking isotopes. Stable isotopes normally fractionate during physical, substance, and natural cycles, leading to varieties in isotopic creation. Albeit isotopic piece shifts inside an exceptionally restricted range, which is generally recognized regularly, it very well may be viewed as consistent and, thusly gives an "isotopic finger impression". In this large number of uses, gigantic importance is put on the little varieties in the isotope proportions. Also, as a rule consistency of results between nations and across extensive stretches of time is essential

In Food research, the utilization of stable isotope marks is deeply grounded for deciding the genuineness and beginning of food. As a first estimate, regular overflow estimations give data on plant 'type' or diet and geological beginning (H and O isotopes) and might in fact be utilized to separate between creation practice (natural, customary)( Roos et al., 2016).
