Good website or app for analysing nutritional content of diet

Just posting on chat to try to get a wide variety of opinions. I hope that's okay.

I have been using a website called for years to analyse my diet and make sure I have all the vitamins and minerals I need (I have a lot of intolerances and can't take supplements).

The website is really top notch and I love it, but this week it stopped working and there is no reply on the contact address.

I wondered if anybody might be able to recommend an alternative?

I have tried quite a lot of different things but they often don't have plain ingredients (like potato, and steak and duck and courgette), or else they are incredibly complicated and intended for professional dieticians.

I would be really grateful to know what other people use. I prefer a website as I am on a PC mostly, but can also use a smartphone app.

I'm looking for one that I can just tell it what I ate each day and it will tell me which pecentage I have reached for every vitamin and mineral, ideally including iodine.

I use mynetdiary

you can adjust the level of complexity it gives you and it has helped me see
exactly where my nutritional needs are not being met

Cronometer. They have an app and a website, though I've only used the website. I've not used it in a while but used for exactly the same reasons as you!

Cronometer is great

Thank you very much, yes they look good.

Oddly I notice that a lot of these programmes ignore iodine, which seems such an important thing to have.

Chronometer looks right up my street though, and I can do the iodine by hand.

Thanks for the recommendations.

My Fitness Pal does this I think.

My. Fitness Pal is totally unreliable as most entries are done by users. Cronometer uses mainly official and governmental nutritional databases.
