This publication presents a combination of foods and associated food numbers currently listed in the Cereals and Cereal Products, Milk Products and Eggs, Vegetables, Herbs and Spices, and Fruit and Nuts supplements, and The Composition of Foods, 5th Edition. Multiple entries for food numbers exist against food names, identifying where data for a food occurs in more than one publication. This makes the Food Number Index an extremely useful aid to link foods in the different publications. An appendix links the old 4th Edition with new 5th Edition food numbers only where a direct correlation occurs, but does not include food names. The Food Number Index provides users with a single collection and link up list of food numbers and directs them to the latest data set.
