The Composition of Foods data file formatting - AN1028

The food table data from The Composition of Foods, 5th edition, will be converted to the database and spreadsheet formats of Microsoft Access and Excel. This will enable MAFF users to access and manipulate the data in the PC environment and will provide structured data compatible with the EuroNIMS information management system. Initial reformatting will use word-processing software, allowing manipulations and editing to enhance file content.
