Launched in France in May 2009, this study of a prospective observation cohort ( developed by the INSERM/Inra/Cnam/University of Paris 13 Mixed Research Unit in collaboration with the Nutritional Supervision and Epidemiology Unit (InVS/University Paris 13) aimed at:

The publication of this table responds to a threefold initiative:

  • Authorizing the database access to the publications of the NutriNet-santé study to all those who wish to interpret the results presented or compare them with their own database.
  • Offering a complete dietary table to the scientific community that could be used for research in the field of nutritional epidemiology.
  • Providing a new tool to healthcare professionals to better treat their patients.

The table published provides the composition into 43 nutrients for 2,122 foods.
