NUT

NUT

This software help you record what you eat and then analyzes your meals for nutrient levels in terms of the USDA "Daily Value" (the standard for food labeling in the US).

Whilst this program is console based, it is completely menu-driven and there are therefore no commands for the user to learn.

The database included is the latest USDA Nutrient Database for Standard Reference.

This database of food composition tables contains values for calories, protein, carbohydrates, fiber, total fat, etc., and includes all the nutrient data in the USDA database, including the Omega-6 and Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Nutrient levels are expressed as a percentage of the DV or Daily Value, the familiar standard of food labeling in the United States. The essential fatty acids, Omega-6 and Omega-3, are not currently mentioned in these standards, and a reference value has been supplied based on Dr. William Lands' empirical equation for the percentages of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids in plasma phospholipids based on diet.
