AusFoods 2019

Date Released: June 2019

AusFoods is an expanded set of food descriptions that derives its nutrient data from AUSNUT 2011-13 (including the nutrient/component extensions) and from the new Australian Food Composition Database (AFCD).

You can think of AusFoods as a user friendly 'wrapper' to AUSNUT and the AFCD. The food descriptions are designed to be comprehensive and easy to use and understand, making AusFoods suitable for analysing dietary intake data.

AusFoods is developed by Xyris Software.
