Optimum Control uses the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) database for linking nutritional data. This comprehensive database (USDA nutritional database/Canada Food Guide) contains thousands of items and some very detailed descriptions, so you can be specific when linking to achieve the most accurate data. You can also enter you own label information from the product itself or from the internet to have even more specific information about your menu.
