The nutrition information always comes from publicly available Food Composition databases (authored by the Ministry of Health or equivalent) or from food manufacturers. We currently offer data from the following countries:
New Zealand (Food Composition DB)
United Kingdom (CoFiD)
United States (USDA)
The measurement is always set to 100 grams or ml based on whether the food is solid or liquid. We only use nutrition data from certified authorities. Regular people are not allowed to add/change/remove any nutrition data in our systems. Dietitians and nutrition professionals are able to add their own foods to their own food databases but they can't change any data in the national databases.
We're working on adding the following databases in Q1 2022:
Countdown / Woolworths (NZ/AU)
The Bulk Source (NZ/AU)
After that, we will be adding more databases in the future.
The following databases will be added in Q1 2022 (exact order is not guaranteed):
