Nutrients Canada brings the Canadian Nutrient File to the iPhone and iPod Touch.
The application includes the full contents of the database (2015) prepared by Health Canada.
Health Canada description of the CNF:
"The Canadian Nutrient File (CNF) is a comprehensive, computerized bilingual database that reports up to 152 nutrients in over 5690 foods. The database can help you find values for nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, protein, energy, fat and many more, and is updated periodically."
Nutrients Canada displays the contents of the database in a convenient hierarchical fashion and provides a search feature (global or within groups). Clicking on a specific food item will bring up a details page enabling you to obtain actual nutrient contents for common servings or packaging. The actual nutritional information is displayed in a familiar format that mimics the Canadian nutritional value label regulations.
Favorite foods can be bookmarked for quick access while users owning a compatible device and printer can print out nutritional labels.
Nutrients Canada was featured in Episode 47 of KinFit (www.kinfit.tv), a fitness podcast.

Ratings and Reviews
Not worth the cost...
I don't use this app because the foods are presented in an endless list and there is no search feature. I would LOVE this app if there was a search feature, if brand names were included AND if the ingredients list was included. I am a celiac and I can't find out from this app if the food contains gluten. Definitely not worth four bucks.
This app does not show vitamins, minerals or any other detailed important information.
Just a database
I hoped that the app recorded calorie intake, but it is just a database of nutrients. Overpriced!!!! I wish i could get a refund.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
