Nutrition info on the go.

April 1, 2010

If you’re out and about and want to quickly look up the nutrition info of a food then try Wolfram|Alpha. You can get nutrition info on any common ingredients and also commercial products (try Big Mac).

I keep this handy by adding an icon to my iPhone home screen.  You can do this (for any website actually) by visiting m.wolframalpha.com then clicking the “+” sign and select Add to Home Screen.

Just search for food and you’ll get all sorts of handy nutritional info.  In the example below I searched for chicken breast.

Update:

TUAW reports that the WolframAlpha native iPhone App will drop from $50 to $1.99 this Sunday. The website remains free.
