"Q: What makes NutritionData (ND) different than other nutritional websites?
A: ND prides itself in its ability to deliver food composition data in the most useable format, with the fewest clicks and keystrokes. ND provides this data in multiple forms – everything from the raw numbers to its own clearly worded analysis – to meet the needs of both individual consumers and food industry professionals alike. ND even simplifies the sharing of this data via its Email a Friend feature.

In summary, ND does three things better than anyone else:
  1. Helps you quickly find food composition data.
  2. Helps you understand that data.
  3. Helps you share that data with your friends.
Q: How accurate is your food composition data?
A: ND obtains food composition data from a variety of published and unpublished sources, with the largest provider of data being the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). While ND cannot guarantee 100% accuracy, we do our best to check or verify all data entries. For your reference, we also identify the data source for each individual food in the Footnotes section of every ND Analysis."
