International Nutrient Databank Directory

The International Nutrient Database Directory committee of The National Nutrient Databank Conference has compiled an updated directory of software applications and their accompanying food composition databases, and of the reference databases that are sources of the food composition values and supporting information.

This directory is intended to assist potential database and software developers in determining which combination of program and database might best meet their needs.  It will also be a resource for students and others who want to learn about and compare selected database and software features.
