French food composition table

Recommended Posts

Here is an alternative to USDA food composition database (also in English):




This is especially useful for folks who live in Europe as soil content is different compared to US. I have been using this quite a while.


Some observations:

*Trace elements such as selenium and iodine are very low in Europe.

*Most of the heavy metals such as iron, copper, manganese are slightly lower, which is favorible to me as I get these a lot.

*B vitamins are again slightly lower, could be due to freshness, but no big deal.

*Beta carotene values are very similar, vitamin C is slightly higher in Europe, could be due to freshness which contradicts above.

*Protein and fiber contents are quite variable. I always trust nutrition facts label for this.
