The food nutrient database contains information on the nutrient content of the 5,740 foods for which nutrient data were prepared for AUSNUT 2011–13, to support the 2011–13 Australian Health Survey (AHS) as set out in Table 2.
The file contains 53 nutrient values reported for each food (now including added sugars and free sugars). Each nutrient value is presented on a per 100 g edible portion basis.
