Net Food Digest
This Week on the Web

Title: Net Digest review

Nutriquest is a wonderful resource provided by the Nutritional Sciences Division of Cornell University. I think this site is worthy of mention for the sole reason that the kind of information it provides is benefits everyone. No bells, whistles or flashy graphics here, this site serves as a place for the public to ask dietary questions and get a response from a professional nutritionist.

You can view the most recently posted question or search the gopher archives by topic. The archives go back to 1991. My query of yogurt produced some 50 or more links to past postings. Unfortunately, ease of navigation at this point is hindered by the organization of files by date so that of the 50+ yogurt files my query brought up, I was given no way to streamline my search except to click on individual articles and then scan them to see if they contained the information I was seeking. Nonetheless, I did learn alot I might not have otherwise.

You're bound to find most every nutrition-related subject under the sun listed, but if not, just post your question and know with confidence that you will get a straightforward, concise response from a professional.
