|This program looks up a table of 7,248 foods selected from the USDA survey database. 29 nutrients are shown in the detail. Enter up to three words describing the food you are looking for. (example: fried chicken breast) Hints: Use singular words. Entering "egg" will find more foods than "eggs". If you are not sure how to spell something, enter the first few letters (for example, "broc" for broccoli or "ban" for banana). A newer database, with incomplete nutrient coverage, (Handbook 8 rev 19 8/06) is available here.
1,887,890 searches have been successfully completed.
For full control over your personal nutrition and exercise needs we suggest Santé for Windows, an inexpensive but very powerful program available on CD-ROM. A larger food database lookup program may be found in Nutristar® CD-ROM.
