Changing Databases in Nutritics

18th Jan 2018

In Nutritics, the active database in your account is selected automatically based on your region.


If you would like to change the active database or access additional databases, you can change your settings by navigating to the menu> settings > databases.


Click on the drop down menu to see the different regional databases available. We have foods from both official national databases and branded foods.


Accessing multiple databases 


If you would like to access multiple databases simultaneously, go to the menu > settings > databases and click on the ‘custom sources’ option from the country/region drop down menu and tick any databases you would like to activate.


Different types of data are available, depending on the source.
