Technical Abstract: USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Dataset for What We Eat In America, NHANES (Survey-SR) provides the nutrient data for assessing dietary intakes from the national survey What We Eat In America, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (WWEIA, NHANES). The current version, Survey-SR 2013-2014, is based on the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference (SR) 28 (2) and contains 65 nutrients each for over 3,300 foods. These nutrient data will be used for assessing intake data from WWEIA, NHANES 2013-2014. Two hundred sixty-five new foods were added for this version. These are mainly commercially processed foods and include several gluten-free products, milk substitutes, sauces and condiments such as sriracha, pesto and wasabi, Greek yogurt, breakfast cereals, low-sodium meat products, whole grain pastas and baked products, and several beverages including bottled tea and coffee, coconut water, malt beverages, hard cider, fruit flavored drinks, fortified fruit juices and fruit and/or vegetable smoothies. Several school lunch pizzas and chicken products, fast-food sandwiches, and new beef cuts were also added, as they are reported more frequently by survey respondents. Nutrient profiles were updated for about 500 foods, including several commonly consumed foods such as cheddar, mozzarella and American cheese, ground beef, butter, catsup. Survey-SR contains four files – Food Description, Nutrient Data, Nutrient Definition and Source Code Files and can be downloaded at
