Look Up Nutrition Facts

Every year, the Nutrient Data Laboratory, Part of the US Department of Agriculture, compiles Nutrition facts on almost every type of food imaginable. Look up their list at: http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list

The Mission of the Nutrient Data Laboratory is "To develop authoritative food composition databases and state of the art methods to acquire, evaluate, compile and disseminate composition data on foods and dietary supplements available in the United States."
