Dataset: Australian Food Composition Database


The Australian Food Composition Database (previously called NUTTAB) is a reference database that contains data on the nutrient content of Australian foods. It is referred to as a reference database because it contains mostly analysed data. Only a small proportion of data in the database come from other sources such as recipe calculations, food labels, imputing from similar foods or by borrowing from other countries.

Release 1 of the Australian Food Composition Database contains nutrient data for 1,534 foods available in Australia and up to 256 nutrients per food. It is our most recent reference database with data preparation completed in 2017.

This database used to be called NUTTAB. The name was changed to make it clear what the database contains.
