myfood24 is a validated online food diary system created to analyse nutritional intake. It was initially created for use in large epidemiological studies, we now also have a teaching version available.

If you are a researcher, teaching or healthcare professional wishing to use myfood24 with your participants, students or patients you must have a licence to use myfood24.
Yes, myfood24 has a recipe builder which allows you to enter the raw ingredients as stated in the recipe. myfood24 will calculate the size of an individual portion based on the number of servings you enter. The nutritional information provided will take into consideration weight and nutrient changes due to cooking. Recipes can be saved to your myfood24 account so you can access them quickly in the future.
myfood24 is available in: English, German and Danish. We have plans to expand the number of languages available and are currently working on an Arabic version.
myfood24 automatically analyses the nutritional information for each food diary submitted. This information can be exported as two CSV files, one is a summary of each diary with back of pack nutrients and the second is a breakdown of each food item with over 100 nutrients. If you would like to see an example of the CSV nutrient outputs, please get in touch to request this.
Our teaching version also displays the nutritional information in a number of vibrant graphs and charts to help convey this information in an engaging manner.
Yes, after a diary has been submitted end-users can see a summary of their nutritional intake for the 8 back of pack nutrients against reference intakes.
However, if you do not wish for your end-users to receive information on their nutritional intake, this can be switched off and is configurable in your project settings.
