"After a heart attack I really needed a good tool to determine the fat content of my diet. Nutrients has a comprehensive, well tended and ever expanding database of nutrition info. It's easy to search and attractively presented. Its built in units conversion ability makes it simple to compare servings of like amounts of diverse foods. Best app for this purpose I could find, and I looked at a bunch."

Some obvious fixable shortcomings
1. The food list is too limited. This really needs a custom food function so users can add their own foods manually with the nutritional information. For example, as part of my diet I got no natural source of B12 so regularly eat nutritional yeast flakes fortified with B12 - I can't record this and my micronutrient journal will always show a major vitamin B12 deficiency. This obviates the point of nutrition tracking. There is no reason to keep users from adding personal custom foods to their pantries.
2. It also needs an export function: I'm using this app specifically to record micronutrients which is where myfitnesspal fails miserably and this app could theoretically succeed. I would like to extract the data later to see if there are correlations with health outcomes.
3. It should be compatible with Fitbit!
4. The recipe feature needs work. First a user should enter all the ingredients then enter the number of servings. Imagine a recipe has four servings. The way things stand, all the data entered count as one serving and a user can select 1/4 serving when saving it in the journal to reflect the true intended serving size. But it only goes down to 1/4 so if you wanted to write that you had half a true serving, there is no 1/8. Too fiddly to work around.
This could be really good, so fix these easy issues!
Very Knowledgeable and handy
I love how detailed this app is. Practical and functional, i can just look on it when I'm doing my food shopping to decide or clarify on some foods to buy. Specially now that I'm going into a transition to eat more vegan diet, this helps me to know what I'm eating supplies my nutrients need.
Also, I have some friends who chatting to just tells me their doctors said they need more iron, or more protein, or more this or that, and I can help them to chose the right food to eat, also telling them about the app so they can download and have it handy as well. Great job NUTRIENTS keep improving it, and we'll help spread the word!!! I'm so happy I found it! 👌🏻👏🏻❤️
While it has a good set up it has a very skewed selection of food options. It has every option off the McDonald menu and yet not an option for mixed greens (in terms of a salad). This could be okay, but it also has no function that allows you to add new food items that aren't provided. I'd be happy to input the nutritional information of some of my commonly eaten foods that aren't listed, but as of right now I have no way to accurately record them. Which could be fine for a free app but a big problem for a ten dollar one. Probably will stop using soon due to this issue.
