1 Hit-Parade of foods per nutrient
 

This function allows to search food (from the base Ciqual: learn more) having for 100g, the highest values on a selected nutrient values.

For this, as shown in the screen below, choose a nutrient in the list of 37 possible (proteins, carbohydrates, fats, minerals, trace elements and vitamins), or indicate pnly the first letters (ca in our example), to reduce the size of the list.

It appears by default, the TOP 20 food. It is possible to have longer lists, choosing the desired number among those proposed:

Viewing a food make a display of values ​​for each of 37 nutrients, relating these values ​​to the recommended daily intakes as a percentage.

To facilitate the overall nutritional analysis, we use 2 indicators:

  • SAIN, which gives the nutritional density, ie the intake of protein, minerals, trace elements and vitamins measured against calories
  • LIM (to LIMit or Reduce), which measures the levels of salt, saturated fat and added sugars (ie the Fat, Salt, Sugar)

The coordinates of the values ​​of these indicators can locate the recipe in the following categories :

  • Recommended, because foods are very good for health
  • Recommended from time to time and in small quantities
  • Reduce, food to eat exceptionally
  • Recommended, but complete your intake with foods very good for health

It appears then the list of all the foods of this family. To view the nutritional analysis of the food, it should display "nutritional food" contained in Ciqual bases and Fcen.

Viewing a "nutritional food" is as in the Hit Parade by nutrient :

6 Why define his tastes?
 

Your food preferences (also known tastes in the application) can sort the recipes in search of them. If these options are not set, recipes appear alphabetically by their name.

The setup includes two categories of complementary information :

  • Family preferred ingredients for protein intake. For each of the six families proposed (vegetables, legumes, meat, poultry, fish and seafood), you can put a "weight" (or coefficient) from 0 to 20. These "weight" will be used to put on top of the list recipes whose compositions have the "weight" combined all the families of foods that make up the highest
  • Preferences for certain foods in certain food groups. This allows you to refine sorting your recipes for preference, if you like, some foods that you will find on top of the list

We recommend you to think about your personal settings, for targeting what is essential. Indeed, too many input parameters can be "contradictory" and you do not get the sort result you expect.

For the classification of food groups to protein intake, we recommend that two families do not have the same "weight". After assigning these values ​​to the families and validated, these families will be classified according to the order of preference, allowing you to more easily verify that the two families do not have the same "weight"

We see that the "main dish: fish" list offers on top of the list the salmon, which is the food we put on the list of our food preferences in fish
