AusBrands 2017

Date Released: September 2017

AusBrands contains nutrient data for a wide range of commercial food products currently sold in Australia.

AusBrands includes data compiled directly from the product labels for nutrients such as energy, protein, total fat, saturated fat, carbohydrate, sugars and sodium. In addition, AusBrands products have been linked to an appropriate food in AusFoods to derive an approximate nutrient profile for nutrients available in AusFoods, including the nutrient/component extensions.

You can control whether the nutrient data shown in FoodWorks for AusBrands foods is sourced from the label data, from AusFoods, or from a mix of both.

NOTE: If you import client diaries from Easy Diet Diary, some of the brand name products imported may not have a link to an AusFoods food (and therefore these foods will not have a full nutrient profile).

AusBrands is developed by Xyris Software.
