🐬 Nutrients Per Calorie

a web interface to the nutritional data available at the USDA National Nutrient Database

###Try it here!###

made with AngularJS and d3

🐘 Mission

This app attempts to help us make better food choices by putting the nutrition data from the USDA National Nutrient Database in an easily digestible form. By comparing foods in terms of nutrients per calorie, we're able to get an idea of what's healthy and what's empty.

πŸ™ Play with the code

To tinker with the uncompiled code, you'll need Node, CoffeeScript and Compass.

npm install -g gulp
npm install
npm start

πŸ’ Get the raw data

The raw nutritional data can be downloaded here at the USDA's website. I used the Access version and exported it to CSV after making a new table with the needed fields.
