Nutrition Facts Comparison – Handy Tool to Compare Foods Side-by-Side

I found this really handy tool that allows you to compare food nutrition facts side-by-side, so thought I would share it with you. So many times I have spoken with people who wanted to do a side-by-side comparison of foods to find out the differences in their nutritional values, fats, carbohydrates, sodium, vitamins, minerals, or the like. Now it comes easily. 

Ever wonder if Swiss chard or spinach has more protein? Or if buckwheat (which is technically a seed, is gluten-free, and a super healthy alternative to wheat) or hard red winter wheat is more healthy? Nutrition facts comparison can help you find out.

Perhaps you wish to compare raw pomegranates with pomegranate juice. You can also look up and compare the fat on Swiss cheese vs. low fat Swiss cheese for your sandwich or meal at dinner. Try using the nutrition facts comparison tool.

Having a dinner party and want to decide whether Camembert or brie is healthier? It is simple with this tool…

Nutrition facts comparison tool is easy to use

I looked up blanched almonds, roasted salted almonds, and salted almond butter to compare them on the nutrition facts comparison tool website.

I was amazed to find that the almond butter version I typically eat was basically just as nutritious as the other two versions, but with less sodium than the roasted almonds. Raw is always best, obviously, unless you are soaking them in water until they shed their skin and sprout, and then sprouted almonds (which I did not see on the food list) are power-packed with nutrition that is released due to the sprouting process!

Here’s how you use the nutrition facts comparison tool:

1)      Go to this website: http://www.healthaliciousness.com/nutritionfacts/nutrition-facts-compare.php

2)      Start typing in the foods you want to look up in the top box on the screen, and a dropdown menu will show up. You can choose by clicking on the food of your choice here.

3)      Do the same in the other two of the three boxes, with different foods you want to compare.

4)      Click the “Compare Nutrition Facts” button under and to the right of the boxes.

Now you have your nutrition facts comparison tool working for you! Simple, and effective. Enjoy!
