  • New data on liquids reported on a per 100 mL basis.
  • Separate files for Indigenous foods, vitamin D and amino acids – but note that tryptophan is also included in the main nutrient data files.

NUTTAB 2010 is available free of charge in two formats—online as a searchable database—and as electronic database files.

The searchable database is for people who want to browse and search for information about a specific food or nutrient.

The electronic database files—provided in .txt and .tab formats—are for people who want to load information directly into specialised databases or into Microsoft Excel™ spreadsheets for manipulation.

NUTTAB 2010 Electronic Database Files

We have also generated some additional data files (in Microsoft Excel™) for specific foods and nutrients. Nutrient data files for vitamin D, amino acids (including some original tryptophan values) and trans fatty acids have been provided separately, due to the limited data available for these nutrients and, for vitamin D, concerns about the currently available analytical methods and results. Likewise, data on Indigenous foods have been provided in a separate Indigenous foods data file.
