The foodcounts® database of fundamental foods
The aim: provide quick access to nutrition information and in a wide choice of formats.
Method: although there are tens of thousands of food products available in the UK, there are fewer than 300 common or fundamental foods that make up the core ingredients. We have therefore constructed our database around these 300 foods, clustering sub-types, and related types, in a logically progressive sequence.
Step 2 Navigate through prompts to arrive at the required food
Step 3 Your selected food item reveals a colour-coded summary of the main nutrition elements: red is high, amber is medium and green is low [relative to all other foods].
Step 4 [Available only to foodcounts® subscribers] Follow the prompts for more detailed nutrition information - and connections to a wide range of personal monitoring applications.
