Kelpiesoft Food File is a free food nutrition database that contains over 7,000 food items, including raw ingredients, pre-prepared products and fast food items.
If you are a person who likes to follow a healthy diet, then you'll know the importance of informing yourself about the nutritional content of your food - an application like Kelpiesoft Food File will allow you to do just this.
Type the food in question into the Kelpiesoft Food File Search box, restrict it to certain categories and the results are displayed in the pane on the right. Presuming Kelpiesoft Food File is accurate, it's a simple, clear way of viewing the nutritional content of your food and is especially useful if you're following a weight-loss diet.
One word of warning: the Kelpiesoft website does not work and it appears that the product is no longer being developed. Some of the food item entries have links to information online that is no longer available as a result and since the Help is also online, you won't be able to use it either.
It's a pity Kelpiesoft Food File is no longer being developed, as it is a useful addition to any healthy person's software collection.
This application is designed for anyone who is interested in what they eat, but is particularly useful for those following a diet for health or weight loss reasons. The database can be easily searched by typing in the food that youÂ´re looking for - the software will display a list of matching foods as quickly as you type. You can also refine the search by selecting one or more of the 24 food categories.
By selecting a food you can view the proportion of fat, protein and carbohydrate contained, as well as total calories and more detailed nutritional information. It also displays various 'food facts' that will assist people following diets that restrict certain kind of foods, such as low fat, low carbohydrate (Atkins / South Beach) or low sodium diets.
The nutritional information was compiled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Nutrient Data Laboratory. This highly-detailed information on the nutritional content of foods is also a useful resource for nutritionists and other health care professionals.
