A Novel Approach
Utilising a unique mapping process to provide more complete data
Going one step further than any other nutrient analysis software, the unique myfood24 datasets extend food composition tables to include branded products. Unlike any other software, myfood24 holds extensive macro- and micronutrient information on branded items, determined using a unique methodology.
To do this, we undertake a mapping exercise to match back-of-pack data from branded food products to nutrient data from food composition tables to provide information on missing micronutrient values such as B6, B12 and iron. This mapped database is unique to myfood24. No other system offers this.
A full quality control activity and additional database formatting is also performed to ensure the accuracy of the data and to enhance the searchability of the dataset.
Developing the initial myfood24 database took approximately 18 months to complete. Our team of dedicated experts are continually updating, expanding and improving our dataset to ensure it remains as accurate and up-to-date as possible.
