Cronometer Gold feature: Nutrition Scores
We are so excited to unveil our latest Gold Subscription feature — Nutrition Scores! That’s right, we’re giving you even more data to nerd out on so you can truly become the healthiest version of yourself!
Have you ever wondered how essential nutrients keep you healthy? We want to bring you more digestible nutrition information using Nutrition Scores.
Nutrients aren’t eaten in isolation but as part of the foods that make up your diet. Studies using single nutrients to improve health have generally yielded mixed results. A better approach is to look at nutrient profiles; each Nutrition Score is made up of a group of nutrients that work together to contribute to your health. This gives you the bigger picture view of how your diet is meeting your nutrition goals, while you can still get into the details for each micronutrient target in your Nutrient Targets Summary.
We’ve added a new section with up to eight scores that can help you make sense of your nutrition by scoring broad functional or logical categories.
Nutrition Scores are calculated from how much of each nutrient target and nutrient ratio in the category you have achieved, based on the data available in the foods you have logged to your diary. Reaching your Daily Target for a nutrient maximizes your Nutrition Score, while exceeding your Maximum Target will reduce your score in that category.
Keep in mind, the Dietary Reference Intakes apply to the healthy general population and are not meant to apply to those who are deficient or in conditions that may cause an increased requirement. If you have customized your nutrient targets to meet your needs, your Nutrition Scores will be calculated from the targets you have chosen.
About Each Nutrition Score:

These nutrients contribute to the health of your teeth and gums.
