"The goal of the National Food Safety Database project is to develop an efficient management system of US food safety databases that are used by the Cooperative Extension Service (CES), consumers, industry, and other public health organizations. The end result of such a management program is a highly informative, efficient and accurate website which will provide one-stop shopping for food safety information"

Nutrition Analysis Tool
This site is a product of the University of Illinois's Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition. "The Nutrition Analysis Tool (NAT) is a web based program that allows anyone to analyze the foods they eat for various different nutrients. This tool is completely free and quite easy to use." They also include links to an Energy Calculator (find out how many calories you should be eating based on your daily activities), and a Soy Food Finder (allows you to learn more about what soy is, what its benefits are, where you can find it, and how to cook with it). Note that these features involve tables, Java, and some plug-in programs that may hinder access for some users.

Your Nutrition Profile
A project of the Dietitians of Canada, this site allows you to calculate the nutrition content of an average day's food intake. Keep in mind that they base their discussions of recommended consumption of nutrients on the Canadian standards for "Recommended Nutrient Intakes" which are generally slightly different than the United States standards. Information given at this or any other nutrition site should be taken as guidance only, and should not replace the advice of a qualified dietitian.
