This pamphlet comprises a number of tables of foods grouped in the commonly used categories of cereals, meats, dairy products and so on. The nutritive values of the foods listed are given with respect to the three basic components as well as iron, calcium and vitamins A, B1 and C. These are computed on an "edible portion" and "as purchased" basis. The figures given represent the first complication of such figures on British foods for use in evaluating dietary data. The values represent data secured from governmental and private individuals. They have been gathered and appraised by the Committee on Accessory Food Factors.
