This short tutorial will show you how to extend NutriAdmin's food database to include up to 75,000+ food items, including:

  • Branded food products
  • Baby food
  • Fast food meals
  • etc

By default, you can query NutriAdmin's food database and get pretty much any non-processed food out of the Standard Reference USDA food database. However, you may want to check extra tabs in the search results if you want to recommend your clients some uncommon foods or branded products such as:

  • Peanut butter
  • Almond butter
  • Brown Rice flour
  • Tapioca flour
  • etc

When you search for an item and you cannot find it in the default tab of results, you can click on Branded USDA Foods, or on other tabs to see if those contain resutls. E.g. when searching for Coconut Butter, you can click the Branded USDA Foods tab as shown below.
