🍒 Welcome to WikiFCD, the database of food composition and nutrient information that anyone can edit!

🥥 Many food composition databases (FCDs) - which currently come in various different formats (e.g. PDF, CSV) - include varying degrees of detail. Nutrient content of unprocessed food items (e.g. apples) can also vary for the same item from different areas and times because of changing characteristics such as climate and terroir.

🥒 Here you can search across multiple FCDs with a single search. We hope to reduce the time that epidemiologists, nutritionists and other researchers spend searching for food composition data. We support federated queries with Wikidata that allow you to ask questions of this data in combination with other linked open datasets.
