Abstract

Food composition databases (FCDBs) are important to studies, industries, polices, and modeling related to diet and food. A FCDB has been provided by each country's government organizations. In Korea, the FCDB has been produced and provided by the Rural Development Administration (RDA) and the national food analysis system (NFAS), a network between qualified laboratories by the nation. In this study, a new web based system, NutriManager, was designed to support integrated database management and collaboration between RDA and NFAS. The main goal of this system is to provide an efficient tool to support a series of workflow from sample enrollment to validation results. NutriManager has many features related to food and nutrient database management and validation; the computerized laboratory notebook, the stepwise processes of algorithms for validity assessment and determination of the representative value, and creation of a Korean National Food Composition Table (KNFCT). Therefore, NutriManager contributes to production of food composition data with high reliability and also can be used as a more efficient tool to link with other public programs using FCDB as a key database in Korea.
