About Us

The aim of the Project foodstruct is to help people analyse their diet, control their diet, be aware of the consequences of their current or possible diet, stick to the recommendations provided by USDA and other trusted and authority institutions, to stay healthy.

The project contains various technical tools that can help you in achieving this. A unique food search allows you to find find food based not only on one condition as "High In Iron" as usual but more complex searches like "High in iron and Vitamin C and low in Calcium".

The other section called "Food comparison" helps to get rid of some prejudice or myths that are often full in one's mind. For instance one might think that rice is just super, but can realize that it's good but not as good as we used to think, after comparing it to Buckwheat or Bulgur. The same happens when you compare an apple with an egg.

At the same time the main tool of the project is the Diet analyzer. You can analyze many predefined existing famous diets and see how many problems do they contain, but more importantly you can simply input your own diet and see your own problems. The analyzer will quickly find and highlight your all deficiency and overconsumption problems as well as problems with some of the rules or recommendations defined by USDA.

Aside from the mathematical tools and analyzers the Project contains hundreds of articles covering some of the topics in more details. Our content is written based on data provided by USDA and the charts and analysis generated by our own software.

Content Writing

The content at is written by people who have medical or nutritional education. The content might be checked for writing styles etc by a linguistic person as well after it is written, but the initial writing is performed by a person with corresponding education. There are some articles that were written by non-medical writers at early stages of the project in 2017, but these articles were reviewed at later stages by people with relevant professions. 

After writing the articles we don’t abandon them. We know that new nutrition studies can be performed and we monitor them constantly. As soon as we find one that might affect our content, we scan our articles and make corresponding adjustments.

The charts and graphical content were generated by our software based on a database provided by US Food Central. The charts are constantly reviewed by our nutrition team.
