Social recipe site offers USDA-based nutritional info


When I browse through my cookbooks or recipes I’ve bookmarked online, I often think to myself, “This looks really good, but how healthy is it?” The website Foodily (which stands for “Food, I love you) might now come in handy. The site compares recipes from across the web and - unlike most other recipe sites - displays detailed nutritional information based on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s standards, weights and measurements.

Nutritional information like sugar and sodium content is important to people who are facing health issues like heart disease and high cholesterol. I have a family history of diabetes, so I can use key words like “low-sugar” or “low-carb" to search the site.

According to a company release, Stanford’s John Farquhar, MD, an emeritus professor of medicine and founder of the Stanford Prevention Research Center, is a medical advisor for Foodily and will be contributing regularly to its blog.
