Intuitive, simple and effective mobile application for searching for food products containing specific nutrients
Correct selection of nutrients is one of the most important factors affecting health. But getting the right amount of macros is not always easy, right?
The main task of the NUTRI Nutrients&Vitamins application is a simple, quick and at the same time comprehensive search for specific nutrients and vitamins in specific groups of food products.
IT'S NOT ANOTHER CALORIE COUNTER...
The program menu is grouped into three main thematic groups. Each allows you to search for nutrients contained in food products in different ways. There's also powerful clipboard feature!
In the application you can calculate a carbohydrate exchanger for each product (with a given weight). In addition, for simple (non-complex) products, you can calculate a serving exchanger. It is calculated separately for specific food groups. On the "Details" subpage, you can learn more about how replacements are counted. This information may be especially important for diabetics.
The main emphasis was placed on the simplicity and speed of application operation. Just a few clicks to get complex search results.
This is where the program starts. You can search for products that meet specific search criteria, search for products by name or associated product group, and search by association with the most important (positive) impact on health and body.
The specified search criteria lead to displaying a list of the best-matching products. The list can be further edited by removing the product group from the list or leaving a single group on the list.
Each product can be displayed as a detailed list or as a list of calculated food exchangers. The lists can be edited by changing the product's weight (for some predefined weights are available, eg. 1 teaspoon or one glass). The product can also be added to the clipboard to quickly return to it later or to create a complex list of products and calculate a summary list of nutrients for it.
The program takes into account the daily requirement limit (DL) and the maximum daily limit (UL) in relation to the average diet related to the demand for 2,000 kcal per day.
A few more words about Nutri idea
Accurate calorie counting is very difficult because the same products available in different places can vary significantly in nutrient content. Therefore, the NUTRI program is not a typical calorie counter. With the application, you can find out at a general level which product are richer in certain nutrients than others. Such knowledge allows for a better diet composition. This applies to special situations where we have a need for specific ingredients and vitamins.
The application has been designed so that it is possible to search for specific food products according to various criteria. You can include search for products that meet the given criteria (e.g. which products contain the most vitamin C and at the same time the least sodium and calories) and you can also search for names, product groups or basic effects on the body (e.g. products that have a positive effect on the skeletal system or heart). There are many possibilities and the interface is extremely easy to use.
Additionally, you can save individual products on the summary list and then add them together (then it can work as a typical calorie counter).
Nutrition data come from globally recognized and publicly available USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference.
The program has been designed for personal use.
By using the application You should be able to form a habit of proper food selection in relation to the individual demand for nutrients.
