Food File contains the nutritional information for 1000s of food products. Searching the database is as simple as typing in the food you are looking for - the software will display a list of matching foods as quickly as you type. The search can also be refined by selecting one or more of the 24 food categories.
Clicking a food item displays the amount of fat, protein and carbohydrate it contains, as well as total calories and more detailed nutritional information. Also displayed are various 'food facts' that will assist people following diets that restrict certain kinds of foods - such as low fat, low carbohydrate (Atkins / South Beach) or low sodium diets.
The software has a friendly web style interface, and features 3D pie charts used to display at-a-glance the relative proportions of fat, protein and carbohydrate in each food.
Food File has a companion web site, Food File Online. It contains the same useful information as the Food File software, but with the convenience of being able to access it from anywhere via the web.
