Rather than developing and maintaining your own nutrient or exercise databases, you will save countless man hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars by relying on ESHA's expertise in this area.
The ESHA merchant database is composed of a number of food items with data from over 1700 reputable sources. The data sources include the latest USDA Standard Reference database, manufacturer’s data, restaurant data and data from literature sources. Each of our nutritional components is individually sourced. In addition, we provide several calculated fields, such as the percent calories from fat and niacin equivalents. We also group foods into detailed food categories and add diabetic exchange and MyPlate food group information to database items. Mathematical checks are run on the database before each update release to ensure data accuracy and integrity.
The exercise databases include 933 exercises with calculated METs and calories burned for an activity's duration.
Your database subset will be customized to fit your needs.
