FoodData Central

    Several USDA food composition databases, including the Food and Nutrient Database for Dietary Studies (FNDDS), Standard Reference (SR) Legacy, and the USDA Branded Food Products Database, have transitioned to FoodData Central, a new and harmonized USDA food and nutrient data system. FoodData Central will also include expanded nutrient content information never before available, as well as links to diverse data sources that offer related agricultural, food, health, dietary supplement, and other information.

    ComBase: A Web Resource for Quantitative and Predictive Food Microbiology

      ComBase includes a systematically formatted database of quantified microbial responses to the food environment with more than 60,000 records, and is used for: * Informing the design of food safety risk management plans * Producing Food Safety Plans and HACCP plans * Reducing food waste * Assessing microbiological risk in foods

      NUOnet (Nutrient Use and Outcome Network) database

        The Nutrient Uptake and Outcomes (NUOnet) database will be able to help establish baselines on nutrient use efficiencies; processes contributing to nutrient losses; and processes contributing to optimal crop yield, nutritional and organoleptic quality. This national database could be used to calculate many different environmental indicators from a comprehensive understanding of nutrient stocks and flows.

        USDA Branded Food Products Database

          The USDA Branded Food Products Database is the result of a Public-Private Partnership, whose goal is to enhance public health and the sharing of open data by complementing USDA Food Composition Databases with nutrient composition of branded foods and private label data provided by the food industry.
