Archive for the ‘Nutrient Analysis’ Category

I have created a nutrient analysis website that I think might be of use to many of my readers:

You can create daily menus to see how much of each nutrient you are getting. It all started when I tried to create an Excel spreadsheet for people to calculate their amino acid intakes on’s Protein page many years ago. This was a terribly user-unfriendly and incomplete way to calculate amino acid needs and slowly but surely I created something I hope will be much better.

Two additional features of are:

1. All the Dietary Reference Intakes are listed at

2. You can quickly look up the nutrient amounts for a particular food and also create links that can be sent to others by clicking on the navigation bar in the top right.

I hope you will find it useful!
