This is a simple Web interface to the USDA Nutrient Database. Nutrient
values are available for 100 gram portions as well as two common
serving sizes. Percent RDA is given for males and females between the
ages of 25 and 50. These figures are based on average body weight of
79kg (174 lbs) for men and 63kg (138 lbs) for women.
To get nutrient values on a food, enter the name of the food you wish
to search for in the search field. Use just one word

more than one item. If you don't get a match, check your spelling or
try a related word. Some foods won't be in the database.
