The first myfood24 solution created - myfood24 UK - was developed at the University of Leeds and validated against independent nutrient biomarkers in collaboration with Imperial College London. Our flagship solution has been further developed to improve both the usability of the nutritional analysis system and to significantly extend the food composition database underpinning it.
The UK food and nutrient database has been developed by nutrition experts and includes generic food and drink items from McCance and Widdowson 7 (MW7) and a whole host of branded products available from major UK supermarkets and food retailers including restaurant chains, coffee shops and fast food outlets. Plus specialist items such as dietary supplements. Wherever possible, food and drink items have been mapped to MW7 items to provide a more complete nutrient profile for over 100 nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
A database of baby and infant foods - developed in collaboration with the University of Southampton; a sip and tube feed database created with the University of Sheffield; and a database of South Asian dishes are also available use with myfood24 UK.
