USDA Unveils Nutrition Database On Branded Foods

September 16, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
The USDA has launched a free online resource that contains nutrition details on more than 80,000 name brand prepared and packaged foods available at restaurants and grocery stores. The Branded Food Products Database was created for families, the food industry and researchers by the USDA with the help of the International Life Sciences Institute North America (ILSI North America), GS1 U.S., 1WorldSync, and Label Insight. The database has a user-friendly interface to make it easier for private food companies to add and update data. Common consumer health and nutrition apps may use the data to inform consumers on a phone or watch in real time while shopping or dining out.
