Internet Resources


The Food and Nutrition Information Center (FNIC) is a leader in on-line global nutrition information. Located at the National Agricultural Library (NAL) of USDA, the FNIC Web site contains over 2500 links to current and reliable nutrition information. Over the years, FNIC has continued to grow with added services and products to meet the needs of our users for reliable nutrition information. A major milestone occurred in 1995 with the launching of the FNIC Web site, greatly expanding FNIC's reach. In addition to the web site overall, our most popular products are our Resource Lists and our Databases of Educational Materials. Our most popular services include our Ask A Question and lending services. Our special projects target specific user groups or subject areas.


FNIC resource lists are subject-specific bibliographies for consumers and professionals. They cover information on such topics as: child nutrition and health, dietary supplements, ethnic/cultural resources, food allergies and intolerances, food safety, food service, and nutrition education/learning.
