SR28 - May 2016 Update
headline bar

Since the release of SR28 in September 2015, we have identified a number of foods and nutrient values which were either incorrect or not calculated properly.  A number of other foods analyzed as part of the sodium monitoring project have also been updated.

A file containing the update files ( is available for the ASCII version of the database.  It contains:  CHG_FOOD.txt, ADD_NUTR.txt, CHG_NUTR.txt, and DEL_NUTR.txt

Users who have imported or plan to import the database into their programs from the ASCII files will need to use this patch to update the appropriate files. The Microsoft Access database for the full version (sr27.mdb) has been updated.

These values have been updated in the online web search program. The changes included in the May 2016 update file for SR28 will be included in the update files disseminated with SR29.
