Vitamin K App Updated with Extremely Powerful Search Capability

James Hollender updates Vitamin K app, which aids users on blood thinners like Coumadin. This iOS app is just one of ten apps updated to version 7.0 in the suite of iNutrient apps: iCarbs, iCholesterol, iFiber, iKals, iPotassium, iProteins, iSatFat, iSodium, iSugars and Vitamin K.

 

 

Version 6.0 made the app capable of using the entire screen even of newer iPhones with the “notch”. This version brings back the Search feature, but one that’s much more powerful. These apps include data from the USDA National Nutrient Database covering the following nutrients: Calories, Carbohydrates, Cholesterol, Fiber, Potassium, Proteins, Saturated Fat, Sodium, Sugars and Vitamin K. All ten apps are universal apps that can be used on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices. The apps include information on how they can be upgraded to app bundles for additional significant savings, i.e., the cost of any apps previously purchased included in bundle is deducted from the cost of the app bundle.

 

The big new feature in version 7.0 is a search capability that allows for both simple and complex searches. There are two fields that can accommodate either words or phrases. Using only the first provides a simple search that looks for the supplied value in the title, description and USDA ID fields. If a second word or phrase is supplied, then the user has the choice of three operands for how the fields are evaluated: “AND”, “OR” and “But Not”. As the user enter or changes their values, an instantaneous display is given of how many records will be found. Pressing the “Results” button then displays the full list of matches found.

 

In the “Access My Records” section, each food serving for the day is listed in it’s own section and the total daily amount of the nutrient is included in the day’s heading. This makes comparing nutrient intake for each day an easy task.

 

All of these apps include a simple color scale to help readily identify the approximate quantity of the nutrient contained in each food serving:

1. Vitamin K – iNutrient: Vitamins K1, K1D & K2:
The Vitamin K app provides information about foods and how they are rated for Vitamin K content. This is provided as a means to assist in deciding which foods to eat if you are using blood thinning medications such as Coumadin or Warfarin. The food servings are rated from NO Vitamin K all the way up to EXTREMELY HIGH in Vitamin K.

 

2. iCarbs – iNutrient: Carbohydrates:
The iCarbs app provides information about foods and how they are rated for carbohydrate content. This is provided as a means to assist in deciding which foods to eat. If you are a bodybuilder, you probably want to have a high intake of carbohydrates, but on the other hand if you have diabetes you need to make sure you don’t exceed your recommended daily amount of carbohydrates. The food servings are rated from EXTREMELY LOW in Carbohydrates all the way up to EXTREMELY HIGH.

 

3. iCholesterol – iNutrient: Dietary Cholesterol:
The iCholesterol app provides information about foods and how they are rated for content of dietary cholesterol. This is provided as a means to assist in deciding which foods to eat. The food servings are rated from EXTREMELY LOW in cholesterol all the way up to EXTREMELY HIGH.

 

4. iFiber – iNutrient: Fiber:
The iFiber app provides information about foods and how they are rated for content of fiber. This is provided as a means to assist in deciding which foods to eat. The food servings are rated from EXTREMELY LOW in fiber all the way up to EXTREMELY HIGH.

 

5. iKals – iNutrient: Calories:
The iKals app provides information about foods and how they are rated for Calorie content. This is provided as a means to assist in deciding which foods to eat. The food servings are rated from EXTREMELY LOW in Calories all the way up to EXTREMELY HIGH.

 

6. iPotassium – iNutrient: Potassium:
The iPotassium app provides information about foods and how they are rated for content of potassium. This is provided as a means to assist in deciding which foods to eat. The food servings are rated from EXTREMELY LOW in potassium all the way up to EXTREMELY HIGH.

 

7. iProteins – iNutrient: Proteins:
The iProteins app provides information about foods and how they are rated for protein content. This is provided as a means to assist in deciding which foods to eat. If you are a bodybuilder, you probably want to have a high intake of carbohydrates, but on the other hand if you are a vegan then you want to make sure you are taking in a sufficient amount of protein. The food servings are rated from EXTREMELY LOW in Proteins all the way up to EXTREMELY HIGH.

 

8. iSatFat – iNutrient: Saturated Fat:
The iSatFat app provides information about foods and how they are rated for content of saturated fat. This is provided as a means to assist in deciding which foods to eat. The food servings are rated from EXTREMELY LOW in fiber all the way up to EXTREMELY HIGH.

 

9. iSodium – iNutrient: Sodium:
The iSodium app provides information about foods and how they are rated for content of sodium. This is provided as a means to assist in deciding which foods to eat. The food servings are rated from EXTREMELY LOW in cholesterol all the way up to EXTREMELY HIGH.

 

10. iSugars – iNutrient: Sugars:
The iSugars app provides information about foods and how they are rated for content of sugars. This is provided as a means to assist in deciding which foods to eat. The food servings are rated from EXTREMELY LOW in sugars all the way up to EXTREMELY HIGH.

 

Users interested in multiple nutrients should be aware of the “iNutrients App”, which includes all ten of the above listed nutrients. Instead of the USDA partial selection of foods used in the individual iNutrient apps, the iNutrients app includes all foods and food servings in the entire USDA National Nutrient Database for those nutrients. It also includes the capability for altering the color scale for each nutrient if desired. And Custom Foods can be created for those not included in the USDA database. Even an entire meal’s nutrient information could be included in a single Custom Food definition to make entry even simpler. The iNutrients app is available for less than the cost of two individual iNutrient apps.
