Tips for Effective Food Search

  • Be Specific: The more specific you are in your search, the easier it will be to find the exact food item you’re looking for. For instance, instead of searching for “bread,” try “whole wheat bread” or “sourdough bread.”
  • Check Serving Sizes: Pay attention to the serving sizes listed in the nutrition information. Serving sizes can vary, so make sure you’re comparing similar portions.
  • Explore Alternatives: If you can’t find the exact food item, look for similar alternatives. For instance, if you can’t find “sweet potato,” try searching for “yam” or “kumara,” which is the New Zealand term for sweet potato.
