I think the table might be missing the labels for what the different letters stand. I assume 'n' is 'no' and 'y' is 'yes', but what are 'p' and 'w'? :) - Gedankenstuecke (talk) 12:26, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

Okay I've added the labels from the linked forum post --Dan 19:12, 29 October 2021 (UTC)
Great, thanks! Gedankenstuecke (talk) 10:24, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

maybe this should be a topic instead of a tool?[edit | edit source]

Because it strongly overlaps with a theoretical "diet tracking" tool - User:DG

I think that would make sense. And then also re-name it to Diet tracking instead? - Gedankenstuecke (talk) 08:40, 10 March 2022 (UTC)

Some ideas to not for later and maybe add to this page:[edit | edit source]

From "The lack of con- Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing 2016 543 trolled vocabulary in the food data creation causes several data integrity issues, e.g., the same foods may be described slightly different by different users. To mitigate the problems, we needed ways to group related foods into semantic categories. Thus, we built a food taxonomy by compiling lists of food-related categories and page names from Wikipediac. The taxonomy is manually organized into 18 main categories (e.g., staple food, meats, vegetables, etc.), 149 subcategories (e.g., wheat, rice, beef, etc.) and 4,233 entities, describing individual ingredi- ents and meal types of food entries. For example, the entry “McDonald’s - Premium Sweet Chili Chicken Wrap (Grilled)” will be annotated with the following set of {main category: subcategory: entity}:{Staple foods: Wheat: Wrap},{Meats: Poultry: Chicken},{Preparation Methods: Grill},{Fast foods: McDonald’s}."
