non USDA food nutrition databases

hi all,

does anyone have web-links to non-usda food databases. which likely means food/nutrition databases outside of the US. just looking to add to my sources.

here are two that i currently use,

1. Finnish Food Composition Database

2. Nutrient tables for use in Australia

both of these databases include iodine info (not included in the usda db afaik).

& the ANZ one also includes some of the more 'unusual' minerals like, Antimony (Sb), Arsenic (As), Cadmium (Cd), Chromium (Cr), Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Molybdenum (Mo), Nickel (Ni), Tin (Sn). (again, not included in the usda db afaik).

Edit:

just to clarify, the db's do not need to include any 'extra' info like i listed above. just looking for a wider range of info on basic numbers & breakdowns on fat/carb/prot. ie. if you compare the same food across different db's, you will see variations in the numbers, for example different sugar and starch numbers.

The Oz database is cool; now I know the composition of vegemite.

Canada has its own nutrition database. I use the Cron-O-Meter nutrition app, and I sometimes have a choice between the USDA and Canadian databases for the same items. Unfortunately, Cron-O-Meter doesn't track the minerals and metals you mention, so I don't know if the Canadian database contains this information.
