The Ultimate Nutrition Tables!

Carotene Alpha

These are extensive charts primarily made up of minimally processed whole foods based on their content of specific nutrients. We attempt to get to the basics, so you may make informed choices in your diet and nutrition. Because of the size of these tables, we trimmed down the additional nutrients listed in these foods. For complete tables of the nutrients in these foods, please go to our extensive alphabetical food charts HERE. All food samples are 100 gram servings of each (the equivalent of 3.53 ounces), listed in a descending order from the highest amount of each nutrient.
