Food Facts Add Up On Nutrition Calculator

August 27, 2008 ( - For those trying to keep an eye on what they eat - or what's in what they eat - Pacific Life has a new calculator.

The Pacific Life Meal Nutrition Calculator has been launched to help individuals create a single nutrition facts label for an entire meal.   Typically, a person would need to research the nutritional value of each ingredient contained in their meal and then add them together, but this calculator does all of that for you, according to the announcement.

The calculator was developed to help consumers gain a better understanding of the nutritional facts (i.e., calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium, etc.) of an entire meal. Its features include:

  • Nutritional label for an entire meal
  • Comparison of the meal’s nutritional values to a recommended daily intake
  • Lists of commonly prepared meals
  • Menu items of popular fast food outlets
  • Search feature
  • Quick estimate of the amount of exercise needed to burn off the calories contained in the meal
