World Nutrient Databases for Dietary Studies


Designed with researchers, dietitians, students, government officials, and database managers in mind, WNDDS is a curated clearinghouse for information about food composition databases and tables, providing an online, publicly accessible and valuable reference tool for researchers and other stakeholders interested in food composition data. WNDDS serves to aide users in their initial assessment of the scope and depth of nutritional composition data available for certain countries and regions.
