Food Types

LogixPath software manages 3 types of foods: Foundation Foods, Customized Foods, and Recipe Foods.

  • Foundation Foods: Foundation Foods are the basic commodity foods with minimum processed, such as wheat flour, carrots, apples, chickens, etc. LogixPath system obtains these foods from USDA FoodData Central database.
  • Customized Foods: Customized Foods are the manufacturing processed foods, restaurants cooked dishes, nutrition supplements, etc. Usually they have food nutrition labels on their packaging. LogixPath administrators enter some common customized foods into the system for any users to view. LogixPath portal users can enter customized foods in their account for future reference.
  • Recipe Foods: Recipe Foods are the foods cooked based on a specific recipe. Users manage their recipes using LogixPath operations management or chef portal software.

Nutrient-Dense Foods

For the same amount of foods (for example 100 gram of foods), some foods naturally contain higher amount of nutrients than others, we call them nutrient dense foods. Another approach to calculate the nutrient density is to divide a nutrient amount by the kcalories of a food. For example, 1 cup (245gram) 2% milk has 308.7mg calcium and 122.5kcal, so this milk's calcium nutrient density is 308.7mg / 122.5kcal = 2.52mg/kcal.

The general principle of a good diet is to select Good nutrient-dense foods while controlling the total Calories intake, and to ensure adequate and balanced nutrients intake from variety of food groups over days and weeks.
