MenuSano Trusted Database
MenuSano uses an extensive database of ingredients to precisely calculate the nutritional content of your food. The database is at your fingertips. You can create accurate nutrition profiles for all your dishes in minutes.
MenuSano uses the USDA National Nutrient Database, Canadian Nutrient File (CNF), and Public Health England's McCance and Widdowson’s "The Composition of Foods." The USDA part of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was created as a database of proprietary-branded foods and generic foods. The FDA regulates food labels and gives the nutrition profile of each serving.
The CNF details the mean values for nutrients in food commonly found in Canadian diets.
MenuSano uses these databases to perform theoretical analysis. This type of analysis is considered to be more accurate than laboratory analysis. The theoretical analysis uses the mean values of naturally varying foods making it more accurate. You can, therefore, be assured that with MenuSano you are getting the best analysis and the most cost-effective solution.
