Revere, Massachusetts – Indie developer James Hollender’s new iNutrients app marks his 20th individual iOS app that’s available in the iTunes App Store. The iNutrients app provides lightning fast access to the entire USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference for 9 nutrients: Calories, Carbohydrates, Dietary Cholesterol, Fiber, Proteins, Saturated Fat, Sodium, Sugars, and Vitamin K. The database includes 8,194 different foods and 14,162 food servings. Recording daily intake items is easy and fast.

There are a limited number of FREE Expo Hall passes to give away. Claim yours now at the link provided below. Hurry, quantities are limited and must be claimed by January 30th.

The iNutrients app provides access to Nutrient data for 8,194 different foods and 14,162 different food servings based on the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference concerning nine different nutrients:

* Calories
* Carbohydrates
* Cholesterol – Dietary Cholesterol
* Fiber
* Proteins
* Saturated Fat
* Sodium
* Sugars
* Vitamin K – Vitamins K1, K1D & K2

These nutrients are listed in alphabetical order and will be presented throughout the app in this same order. The icons are from individual apps by the developer, each covering a single nutrient corresponding to the nutrients in this app. They make for quick identification of the nutrients for the user.

iNutrients utilizes information taken from the entire USDA National Nutrient Database for each of these nine nutrients, unlike the individual apps, which cover less than 10% of what’s available. Users will find the Search functionality extremely fast as all needed infromation from the USDA database is local to the app – no internet connectivity is required.

From the Search functionality the user can save information for the foods they eat each day. They are able to pick a serving size and then either record a multiple of 0.1 – 9.9 servings; or optionally create a custom serving size from 1 to 500 grams. As they change the serving size they can graphically see the the effect on the various nutrients via color coding ranging from white to black (think burnt):

* Black – Extremely High
* Dark Red – Very High
* Red – High
* Orange – Moderately High
* Yellow – Moderate
* Light Green – Moderately Low
* Green – Low
* Light Blue – Very Low
* White – Extremely Low

The My Data section allows users to access up to a full year’s worth of Food Serving Intake Items stored in their Personal iNutrients Database. Select any Intake Item to get the complete information available. From the display users can tap the Action button in the upper right corner to:

* Delete – Delete the current Food Serving.

* Change Number of Servings – Change the number of Servings for the current Food Intake Item.

* Change the Intake Date – Move the current Food Serving to another day. – This is extremely useful if the user wasn’t able to enter what they’ve eaten on the day it occurred; just simply enter it and then use this function to change to the date needed.

The Customize section provides a means for users to create their own Custom Color Scale for each nutrient if desired.

The rotating images occasionally seen on the right, on the iPad only, are representative of the 25 different Food Groups designated by the USDA. Versions of these images will typically be seen whenever a food group is identified on any device.
