NutrienTrackeR: Food Composition Information and Dietary Assessment

Provides a tool set for food information and dietary assessment. It uses food composition data from several reference databases, including: 'USDA' (United States), 'CIQUAL' (France), 'BEDCA' (Spain), 'CNF' (Canada) and 'STFCJ' (Japan). 'NutrienTrackeR' calculates the intake levels for both macronutrient and micronutrients, and compares them with the recommended dietary allowances (RDA). It includes a number of visualization tools, such as time series plots of nutrient intake, and pie-charts showing the main foods contributing to the intake level of a given nutrient. A shiny app exposing the main functionalities of the package is also provided.
