I was browsing curezone.com and came across someone’s post. This is the USDA (for non-North Americans, the United States Department of Agriculture, regulatory body overseeing food-related issues) website for evaluating the nutritional content of foods.
On this first page, there are two fields (empty field labelled “keyword” where you enter the food, eg: broccoli; then second field w/ drag menu of category of “Food Group”, in this case vegetables and veg products). Once you hit submit button, it takes you to another page where you specify more details (eg: broccoli, raw, cooked, stalk, flower, etc.). Then to next page where you specify the quantity (this could be by grams, ounces, or in case of certain foods, by quantity, eg: one large egg, etc.). Submit and voila`! It lists all the detailed nutritional value, and I mean detailed. Not only every vitamin, carbohydrate, protein, fat, but also more specific (every type of sugar: glucose, fructose, sucrose, etc.; or types of amino acids in the protein; or the types of fatty acids). Very detailed. Much more so than package labels. Oh, and there are some prepared products also (I never eat these, but I searched Oreos, under baked goods, and up came Nabisco Oreo cookies).
This may be somewhat off topic for cleansing forum, but there’s a lot of nutritional talk here. It might be fun to occasionally look up nutritional values. Incidentally, I noticed that gram for gram, broccoli has more vitamin C than orange (almost twice, depending on which variation you choose, eg: broccoli flower, cooked, raw; or orange navel, Florida, etc).
Happy eating! :wink
