Just type in the food item you are looking for in the search area in the nutrition calculator and hit enter or the "search" button to find your food selections.

Where The Data Comes From

This calorie intake calculator is not hosted by this website. Updating such a large nutrition database is a huge undertaking that we are not in a position to maintain at this time.

We hope to one day host our own calculator, but in the meantime we are grateful for those websites that have done all the grunt work and have allowed us to share all their hard work on our website.

With that said, we cannot verify the accuracy of the information but feel it is correct to the best of our knowledge.

Hundreds of items have been verified against the USDA food database, but the are thousands of items, so we have not verified them all.

Please use the information with some caution and if you are unsure, do your own searching to validate the numbers before tracking the calories, carbs, fat, etc.

Only 10 items are displayed in total for your search term. Therefore, when typing in your search term, be a specific as you can to ensure what you are looking for show in the results. The database will return results from restaurants as well as food items.

If what you are looking for is a food item, then type the word "generic" at the end of your search term.

The information displayed in the search results includes the item name/description, serving size and the nutrition information.

Only certain nutritional values are displayed in the search results on this page. These include calories, total fat, carbohydrates and protein.
