Search Programs for USDA Food Composition Databases
headline bar

The search program, previously written for use on your PC is no longer available.  Since it was written over 10 years ago, the database has expanded both in the number of foods and nutrients, and the program no longer works reliably.  

We hope to have a version for tablets and smartphones available sometime in the future.  Though, at this time, we can not predict when.  In the meantime we invite you to use our online search program, which has many of the same features plus some additional ones, as the PC Search program. 

You can also download the database behind these applications, the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference can be downloaded from this web site if you wish to use it directly in your own applications.
