How do I search for a food?

There are 3 main ways to search for a food using the MyFoodAdvisor database. From the Explore Foods page:

  1. Type the name of a food in the Enter Food box. Click search.
    For example: If you enter "chicken" as your search, your results will give you all the foods in the database with chicken in the name.
  2. Type a number in the small boxes below the Enter Food box. Click search.
    For example: If you enter 100 in the calories box, the search will pull up every food in the database with less than 100 calories per serving.
  3. Select a food category under Browse for a food. Your result will reflect all the foods that are classified in that food group.
    For example: If you select Starch and Grains, your search will take you to the breads, cereals, crackers, and starchy vegetables food groups.
