Providing a wealth of dietary information at your fingertips, this scale is programmed with detailed nutritional data for nearly 2000 foods (from soup to nuts – literally!), so you can easily monitor what you put on your plate. The LCD screen shows the calories, carbohydrates, sugars, protein, cholesterol, sodium, and four other nutritional factors, based on the weight (in grams or ounces) of the food placed on the scale. Four-digit key-codes, listed in the included guide, are used to specify the food type.
For easy reference, the guide lists twelve general categories of foods and ingredients (fruits, vegetables, meats, baked goods, etc.), as well as snacks, condiments, beverages, and many brand name prepared foods. You can add up to 99 new codes for foods not listed in the guide by entering nutritional information listed on the food package. It can even tally the data for several different foods, useful when you want to calculate the nutrition of a complete meal or your total daily consumption.
Measuring 9-1/4" x 6" and less than an inch thick, the scale stores easily in a drawer or cupboard. 10 lb (5kg) capacity. Five-year warranty. Three AAA batteries included.
