Health and Nutrition

It is becoming more and more apparent during the recent years that the famous low calorie diet and/or low fat diet does not sufficiently provide for a healthy nutrition. Food quality plays a significant role and specifically the quantity of the elements that essentially contribute to the body’s mid or long-term function. This is why tables have long been established in the USA and relatively recently in Europe, with a list of each element in vitamins, minerals and trace elements which are necessary on a daily basis depending on age and gender. The USA list is updated and detailed and this is why we use it in our system as a reference point.

Vitatester.com is aware that exact accuracy in the analysis of food is not possible, unless the analysis is made for a specific meal, at a specific time. As this is practically impossible, we believe that the use of serious calculation data and analysis (even as an average) may easily and quickly provide a credible picture of the nutrition value of the meals which are eaten on a daily basis. Therefore, people who are aware of the truth that the constant lack of the required quantities of nutritional elements has a slow, but steady negative impact on the body’s good function, can take measures by counting and improving the quality of their diet.

Further down, you will be able to choose what you ate from a list of primary forms of cooked or raw food (fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, etc.), but also from a second list of secondary food. In other words, the result from combining different food (meals from recipes, such as green beans, chicken and potatoes, etc.). Regardless of whether the list is continuously updated with new recipes, if you do not find the meal you prepared, then with the use of a special program, you can count the vitamins and elements of your own recipe, as part of your daily diet.

After you have selected each meal and recipe, proceed to the next step which presents the result of your overall daily diet, with a detailed content (each vitamin, mineral, trace element separately, but also proteins, carbohydrates, fat, cholesterol, even amino acids). Vitamins, minerals and trace elements are compared with what should be eaten on a daily basis (a prerequisite is that the age and gender is entered) and they are presented with a percentage analogy of your intake of all the nutritional elements compared in relation to the quantity that would be ideal for the mid to long-term protection of your health.

The database of cooked ingredients used in recipes was formed from:
1. An analysis performed by special laboratories on cooked food
2. Where the is no analysis, from calculations with the use of special tables presenting the retention of elements (vitamins, etc.) and the performance of edible food after it has been prepared (cleaned, peeled, etc.) and/or cooked. These ingredients are characterized as “EST” which stands for calculated.
