In this first phase of the food diary project, I have imported some nutrition data from another health project.
Though this initial data focuses on Potential Renal Acid Load (PRAL) and calories, the food diary will contain many more nutrition values.
The food diary will initially be based on enhanced USDA data. This public domain data is widely used by many online food diaries, but it does have some drawbacks.
These easiest one to overcome is the one I have already tackled. PRAL is a calculated value, but it is not present in the original USDA nutrition tables. A simple calculation allows me to present PRAL values in a usable format, which should cater for all those people interested in acid-alkaline diets. But is this enough? Is NEAP important to you?
Are there other nutrition values that are important to you?
