With this website, the National Food Institute has the intention to facilitate the citizen's access to information about components in the foods we eat. Every effort is made to present the information as correct and timely as possible. If errors are brought to our attention, we will try to adjust them.
It is evident that a food composition databank cannot be established on a Danish effort alone. The economical constraints alone are much too big even on a long-term scale. Therefore, data have also been collected from other countries' food composition databases.
The National Food Institute cannot take responsibility concerning the precision, the succession, the opportuneness or the completeness of these data.
The National Food Institute undertake no responsibility of the presented data and the following use thereof, including use in software and link from other web sites. The National Food Institute accepts no responsibility with regard to such problems incurred as a result of using this site or any linked external sites.
