Detailed Nutrition Information


#1

Hey everyone,
I was wondering what people are doing for the nutrient content that isn’t included in the USDA food base. I like to use nutritiondata.self.com but they tend to be missing the same information. In particular the following are elusive numbers for most foods:
Chloride
Iodine
Molybdenum
Chromium
Biotin
Boron
I’m getting tired of searching each nutrient for every food I’m thinking of adding to the recipe and often not finding anything. I know these are present in a lot of foods. Anyone got any ins??

if you’re asking for a database that maps nutrients to ‘found-in’ foods, nutrientcraft.com might help

It doesn’t list all the missing ingredients you asked for, but it has many (though an infuriating web design) http://wholefoodcatalog.info

It includes:
Iodine
Molybdenum
Chromium
Biotin
Soluble/Insoluble Fibers
Sulfur Containing Amino Acids

@shadowhawkxx that website’s pretty slick but it’s still missing all of the nutrients I haven’t been able to find elsewhere (it appears to be using the same USDA database). I want to see, for example, how much iodine is in heavy whipping cream. I know there’s a lot in milk so there could be some or there could be very little.
@Stefan Perhaps it’s just that I can’t figure out the website but I see the ingredient of interest, and the nutrient of interest, but not how much nutrient in the ingredient?

Like I said, horrible design. Click on the food, then click on the link at the top for nutritional info (whipping cream (milk fat) is here: http://wholefoodcatalog.info/food/whipping_cream(milk_fat)/nutrients/ )
Unfortunately, it looks like they just list a “-” for iodine (which would mean it wasn’t measured since they have 0’s for plenty of other items).
