It tells you the nutritional data of raw food like the USDA tag that is behind most products. Aside from this it also tells you the glycemic index, inflammation factor, and fullness and nutrition rating.

Aside from giving you data on your ingredients, this tool can calculate a recipe’s nutritional data for you! They also have a few pages on certain health issues, a personal nutritional tracker, and blog feature on their site.

I will be using this for this blog, and for my own recipes.Have a look yourself, you can use it for free but miss out on some feature if you do. signing up is free and takes less than 5 min.
