Food groups and other rich analyses

Gain useful insights into dietary patterns.

No more guesstimates — quantify the food groups in dietary intakes, recipes and meal plans. See serves of basic food groups (e.g. protein foods) and get insight by drilling down into 28 subgroups (e.g. red meats, processed meats, soy products, seafood high in LC n-3 fatty acids). Recipes and ‘discretionary’ foods (e.g. lasagne, donuts) are broken into their constituent parts and allocated to food groups accordingly. For even greater insights, combine a food-groups perspective with a nutrient-perspective, for example, by using the Nutrient Reference Values (NRVs) analyses.

The powerful Xyris food group system is designed to be broadly compatible with the current Australian Guide to Healthy Eating and takes inspiration from the USDA Food Patterns Equivalents Database.
