Where to find and how to upload to database?
First, let me apologize if this is the wrong section. It looked like the best place for this question.
I am starting a dieting website. I am in need of downloading as much food nutritional information as possible. For example, an apple may have xxcalories, xfat, xsodium and etc. I am looking for some place to download as many foods as possible with this info.
I would then like to upload that to my phpmyadmin database. Any ideas where I can find a downloadable file with this info? And if I can locate something, how do I insert that to my database in the right tables? I already have a database created and I have the ability to upload one food and its nutritional facts at a time. However, it would be much simpler to find a huge file of these facts and just upload them. Any ideas?
