Food Composition Table

Discussion in 'General Fitness' started by Dave Farrance, Jul 25, 2005.

  1. I want a table that I can print out showing energy, protein, fat, and
    carbs for various foods. Something like this:

    http://www.brianmac.demon.co.uk/food.htm

    Except that the above table has many gross inaccuracies that are bad
    enough to ruin calculations for daily intake. Anybody know of a similar
    table, but more accurate?

    The reason, by the way, that I think the above table is inaccurate is
    because I checked nutrition labels on food that I bought against the
    USDA database, (which has too much info to be convenient)
    http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/Data/SR17/reports/sr17page.htm
    and found that those largely agreed with each other, but did NOT agree
    with that table.

    E.g. Cals per 100g as per USDA and as per above table
    raw apple 52 / 35
    boiled carrot 35 / 20
    onion 44 / 25
    lean pork chop 145 / 330
