Visualizing Nutrients in Bite Size
www.lonelydatum.com/visualize/food Nutrition can be daunting, because it is often too technical for the general public. This project allows viewers to explore 150 nutrients for over 5,000 different food items. Using the interface, viewers can quickly see which food groups contain a selected nutrient. Each food item’s nutrient can be compared to the recommended daily intake. Some nutrients, however, are still mysterious to food intellectuals who have yet to prescribe a recommended daily intake for nutrients such as sugar and some fats.
