Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Lisa G Brown, BS, RD, LD, CDE (College of Saint Benedict)
Description: This CD-ROM provides a searchable version of the nineteenth edition of Bowes and Church's Food Values of Portions Commonly Used, by the same authors (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2010).
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a way to search by foods or by nutrients to identify healthy food choices. It enhances the delivery of the material to allow for food lists to be developed or to compile data on an Excel spreadsheet.
Audience: The CD-ROM was developed to help students and practitioners increase their knowledge of the composition of foods. It also can be used by consumers to look up nutrient values of various foods. Exercises are included to enhance the learning opportunities. With its ability to customize each report based on needs, this CD-ROM does meet the objectives. This publication has been a recognized source of nutritional analysis data for years.
Features: This provides a way to efficiently identify food choices based on certain criteria along with the ability to be able to print out an Excel spreadsheet. Installation was relatively fast and easy. The highlight is the speed with which food can be analyzed. The shortcoming, obviously, is that the information would not be accessible if a computer was not available.
Assessment: The CD-ROM format increases the speed and ease of analyzing the nutrient composition of foods. It also has the ability to analyze particular substances such as caffeine, iron, monounsaturated fats, and plant sterols that are more difficult to find in other analyses. New editions are necessary to add new food options and keep up to date.
