What is in the Food I Eat?

Ever wondered what is in the food you eat? You don’t have to find a nutritionist, or even look in a big fat textbook, to discover a wide range of food composition knowledge. All this and more is easily available on the web–for free! The United States Department of Agriculture hosts What’s In Food, where you can find a host of resources to help you discover the nutrients found in individual foods and calculate the same for recipes. You can even find the composition in selected fast foods by brand. Wondering how much sugar is in beverages? There is a resource for that. MyFood-a-pedia is an easy to use searchable database of one food with the ability to compare with two items.
