Finder - Based on the USDA nutrient
database SR16-1, Nutrient Finder provides an intuitive
interface to access nutrient data values for over 6,600 commonly
used raw, natural, and packaged foods.
Nutrition Data - The USDA provides
the SR16-1 nutrient database as a public service at the Nutrient
Data Labratory, along with links to various other
documents regarding health and nutrition.
Try the Nutrient Finder
product and please send us comments as
you note them. Nutrient Finder is now available for
download. Please try our
'Windows' based Nutrient Finder product, and send us
you comments. We are continually improving the Nutrient
Finder product and greatly appreciate your suggestions.
Nutrition Data Documentation - Though Nutrient Finder
provides the nutrition data values for foods as they
appear in the USDA SR16-1 database, a description of
the individual requirement needs for people exists in
additional documents approved by the USDA and the Institute of Medicine.
We have analyzed the additional documentation regarding
nutrition data values for foods, and have determined RDA (Recommended
Daily Allowance) values based on a persons sex, age
and body weight.
The Nutrient Builder
product presents nutrition data values for a list of foods
as a group, and displays the data as a percent of RDA
based on each nutrient. This product is currently being integrated into Nutrient Finder, and will be made available
to registered members.

Nutrient Builder product is ready for use. Please use
