Database for Analyzing Dietary Sources of Nutrients Using USDA Survey Food Codes
A database containing the major food sources for 31 nutrients and dietary constituents per 100 grams food. Data is provided for all food codes in the USDA CSFII 1994-96, 1998 coding and recipe databases. The Dietary Source Nutrient Database also documents how nutrients for each code were assigned to one or more of the 113 dietary source food groups and contains a sample program to join the dietary sources nutrient data to food intake records.
This database was used for this study: Cotton PA, Subar AF, Friday JE, Cook A. Dietary Sources of Nutrients Among US Adults, 1994 to 1996. J Am Diet Assoc. 2004; 104 (6): 921-930.
The database can be used with the 1999-2000 National Health and Nutrition Survey and other surveys that use the USDA 1994-96, 1998 food codes.

Food Commodity Intake Database
The Food Commodity Intake Database (FCID) was developed as a cooperative effort by USDA and the Office of Pesticide Programs for use by EPA and other organizations when conducting the exposure components of dietary assessments. The FCID includes data from two surveys conducted by USDA: CSFII 1994-96 and CSFII 1998. These surveys provide useful information on 5,831 different foods and beverages reported by people of all ages. The FCID is available for purchase from NTIS (search on PB2000-500101).
