Databank Directory

NOTICE:  The International Nutrient Databank Directory (INDD) has long been supported by the NNDC.    Since our programmer left in 2019, we have not been able to update the database nor modify any of its features.   As we have not seen much activity on the site, and in consideration of the cost of revising the INDD, the Steering Committee of the NNDC decided at its November 18, 2020 meeting to discontinue support of the INDD on December 31, 2020.

There are many resources on the internet available to nutrient database users.   FAO/INFOODS maintains a list of international food composition databases and tables on its website.  They have also provided a list of software tools. You may also use your favorite internet search program to locate other databases by using the terms nutrition analysis software or food composition databases.  Dr. Lisa Harnack of the University of Minnesota has prepared "Considerations in Selecting a Food and Nutrient Database" which you can use. Please cite the resource and author if it were to be used in your work.

Thank you for your interest in the INDD and we hope it has met your needs in the past and that the new information provided here will meet your future needs.
