The USDA National Nutrient Database is a database produced by the United States Department of Agriculture that provides the nutritional content of many generic and proprietary-branded foods. Released in August 2015 and revised in May 2016, the current release, Standard Reference 28 (SR28), contains "data on 8,800 food items and up to 150 food components".[1] New releases occur about once per year. The database may be searched online,[2] queried through a REST API,[3] or downloaded.[4]
