Researcher pitch: Anders Poulsen, DTU, about 'Nutrient database for plant-based ingredients'.

Friday 12 May at 11-11:30.

'Nutrient Database for Plant-Based Ingredients'

We are looking to collaborate with producers and consumers of industrial food ingredients. We aim to establish a nutrient database of ingredients commonly used in plant-based alternatives to animal products. The database may help food producers and researchers to:

  • Create innovative products that meet consumer demands for taste, texture, and nutrition.
  • Develop products that are label-friendly, healthy, and cost-effective.
  • Optimize the nutritional value of plant-based ingredients, foods and recipes.
  • Ensure that products are labeled accurately and meet regulatory approval.

We have 50+ years’ experience analyzing foods for macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids, carbohydrates etc. We publish the Danish Food Composition Database (, a long-standing source of nutrient data in Danish foods, used by industry, nutritionists, researchers and consumers. We have the infrastructure to analyze, host, aggregate, calculate and publish nutrient data. We have data on most raw plant-based ingredients. However, we lack data on most processed industrial ingredients, which this project should make up for. We also intend expand our recipe calculator ( with functionality to calculate nutrient profile and food label information from industrial ingredients.
