Are you collecting food records in your study? NCC can enter your study’s food records into Nutrition Data System for Research (NDSR) for nutrient analysis.
NDSR is a dietary analysis program that allows for the nutrient analysis of food records. Output files from NDSR include intake estimates for 174 nutrients, nutrient ratios, and other food components. Food group serving count estimates (e.g. servings of dark green vegetables, sugar sweetened soft drinks, etc.) are also provided. The software includes a dietary supplement assessment module so that dietary supplements reported on food records may be entered. This allows nutrients from both food and supplemental sources to be quantified.
Additional features of our food record analysis service:
- Rigorous quality assurance procedures to maximize data quality
- Assistance in protocol development
- Experience analyzing food records for a range of studies and study populations (list of studies).
In addition to entering food records into NDSR for nutrient analysis, NCC can assist in training your staff in food record collection procedures.
