ESHA Research Announces Partnership with FindTheBest
SALEM, Ore. — ESHA Research, the leading provider of nutrition analysis software and databases, today announced a strategic partnership with FindTheBest to provide nutrition information for FindTheBest’s health information site, HealthGrove.com.
Using the data found in ESHA’s robust nutrition database, the HealthGrove.com team was able to create an in-depth comparison platform for more than 30,000 food items and ingredients. The HealthGrove.com team has created three nutritional composite scores, which measure protein quality, micronutrient density, and satiety to help users understand their options and easily identify the best foods for any food group, brand, etc.
ESHA’s food and nutrient database is composed of more than 56,000 food items, with data from over 1,700 reputable sources. The data sources include the latest USDA Standard Reference database, manufacturer’s data, restaurant data, and data from literature sources. Unlike crowd-sourced nutrition data found in many consumer applications, ESHA’s data is thoroughly researched and run through a rigorous quality-control process before entered into the database.
Companies looking to build an application around quality nutrition data can license the ESHA database in order to save time and money on development.
