With over 5,700 food entries. Many western governments have done large amounts of analysis of food composition. But the results of their work have not proven to be very accessible to the public. Some commercial websites have attempted reasonably successfully to make the food composition databases more accessible. But there was a lot of work to be done in rewording the food names in order to make the data usable and useful to the general public in book form. This reference book is based upon the Australian Health & Nutrition Counter is a directory of the data taken from the Australian Food Supplement and Nutrient Database (AUSNUT 2011-2013), from Food Standards Australia and New Zealand. But we reworded the food names to make them more directory friendly. So for example... Alcoholic Beverages, Wine, Red, French, Bordeaux - is out and... Bordeaux Red Wine - is in. Each listing contains... 15 essential vitamins: A, Retinol, Beta-Carotene, E, B1 (Thiamin), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B6 (Pyridoxines), B12 (Cobalamin) and C.
