[Earlier][1] I lamented the lack of complete information and good interface on [CNN][2] and [About.com][3]'s nutrition pages. Well, check out [Roy Walford][4]'s page. Walford is the UCLA gerontologist researching the effects of a reduced calorie diet on life span. The site includes a [decent search interface][5] to the complete USDA nutrition database. You can also download a Windows program to do the search for you.
