    The Centre for Food Safety makes no representations or warranties, express and implied, about the accuracy, completeness or suitability for any purpose of the information published in this website and the results generated by the Food Nutrient Calculator. Persons who wish to use the information published in this website or results generated by the Food Nutrient Calculator should exercise their own skill, care and judgment with respect to the use and are advised to obtain professional advice before using the information and the results.

    The nutrient data obtained from the Food Nutrient Calculator are not intended to be used to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any condition or disease. Please consult relevant health professionals regarding the suggestions and recommendations on health. This web site is not intended to deliver professional advice or other healthcare services and the information published herein should not be relied upon for personal diagnosis, treatment or any other health related purpose.

    The Centre for Food Safety alerts you to the inherent limitations in the Food Nutrient Calculator and the information collated in the Nutrient Information Inquiry System. You should read the User Guide of the Food Nutrient Finder before proceeding to the Food Nutrient Calculator. You should also read the User Guide of the Food Nutrient Calculator before start browsing and entering foods onto the report list of the Food Nutrient Calculator.

    The database used in the Food Nutrient Calculator contains nutrient data that is an average of nutrients in a particular sample of foods and ingredients, determined at a particular time. The nutrient composition of foods and ingredients can vary considerably over different batches and between brands because of a number of factors including seasonal variation, different processing condition, and source of ingredients. You should be aware that given these limitations, the results generated by the Food Nutrient Calculator will only ever be approximate in nature, rather than exactly reflective of individual food item nutrient composition. Better reflection of the average nutritional composition of individual food item requires representative sampling. In addition, the data files used in the Food Nutrient Calculator might originally be developed not for the purpose of calculating the nutrient quantities of food.

    Neither the Government nor any of its employees/agents shall in any circumstances whatsoever be liable or responsible for any loss or damage whatsoever arising out of or in connection with the use of this website, the information published herein and the results generated by the Food Nutrient Calculator.


    ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
