American Analysis Software releases new Nutrition Analyzer application

FBR Staff Writer Published 28 June 2013

American Analysis Software has released the latest version of its Nutrition Analyzer application, which embeds a database that covers the nutrient content of almost 8,000 food items.

The company noted that this application allows daily analysis of the nutrient content of foods consumed, and reports possible nutritional deficiencies and excesses.

It contains nutritional data of almost 8,000 types of foods. There are 146 nutrients listed for every food type. In addition, all the vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids, like cholesterol and the omega3 oils, and other nutritional factors like calories, protein, fiber, are listed for each of the food types.

This database is made available by the USDA as a download in the public domain, free from copyright or usage restrictions.

This application offers the full nutrient content of all food items in the USDA database embedded, so users can enter daily consumption of specific portions of foods and identify the nutrient content of their food intake for any given day or period of days.

The user also has access to a personal table that covers minimum daily requirement, recommended daily requirement and tolerable maximum requirement for any of the 146 nutrients.

The user can view reports of the daily intake of all nutrients and see a comparison where the actual daily intake is compared to the user's entries into the personal Daily Recommended Intake table. The application will show alerts where the minimum requirements for any nutrient are not met, or where the maximum safe intake is exceeded.
