Nutrient Value of Some Common Foods

Published by Health Canada, the Nutrient Value of Some Common Foods (NVSCF) booklet provides Canadians with a resource that lists 19 nutrients for 1000 of the most commonly consumed foods in Canada.

The NVSCF has just been updated and is now free of charge. This new version now emphasizes mixed dishes rather than just individual ingredients. Use this quick and easy reference to help make informed food choices through an understanding of the nutrient content of the foods you eat.
