MyNetDiary, a comprehensive food diary, is now making its most powerful resource, a food database with over 215,000 verified foods, available for third-party licensing.
The MyNetDiary Food Database has been built over the last six years to include 215,000 verified foods from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia. Included are foods from more than 600 restaurants and over 1,400 food vendors. These entries are from well-known brands, fast food chains, supermarkets, unique diet foods, ethnic foods and common USDA foods. UPC barcodes are assigned to most packaged foods in the database, allowing users to scan and log with certain mobile devices.
Wellness, nutrition, and medical companies can benefit from licensing MyNetDiary’s Food Database to get to market faster, using the latest nutrition data and keeping the database in top shape with quarterly updates provided by MyNetDiary.
“We know that an inaccurate or out-of-date food database can completely undermine the concept of successful calorie tracking,” says Sergey Oreshko, CEO of MyNetDiary. “That is why we maintain a rigorous verification process to continuously improve the database’s quality. On average, we also add about 300 verified foods each day.”
Each food listed in the MyNetDiary Food Database contains a lot more than calories and macro-nutrients, like fats, protein and carbohydrates. MyNetDiary’s nutrition data lists up to 45 nutrients for each food, with an overall average of 14 nutrients shown per food item. The database also accepts up to 10 different serving varieties for each food (by volume, weight, calorie, etc.). This allows users to not only control calorie intake but plan for a more comprehensive healthy eating lifestyle.
“We have set ourselves apart by approaching the database as a living, changing set of data,” says Oreshko. “We research multiple servings of foods whenever possible, not forcing people into figuring out how many calories are in a half-serving, for example. We also take duplicate foods very seriously and remove them promptly when they are discovered. This sets us apart from competitors who tout having over one million foods listed. Our foods are the ones people are searching for.”
