About Us

We are a small team of developers with a mission to help people succeed on a plant based diet. For this we have developed a vegan diet optimizer that we've called the Vegan Nutrition Tracker.

Like any other diet a plant based diet is adequate only when it is balanced. And a well planned vegan diet is adequate for any stages of life. But what does it really mean to have a balanced diet and how do you plan one? It simply means that you get all the required nutrients from the food you eat on a daily basis.

If you are regularly missing a vitamin or a mineral in the long run it will result in health problems.

What we do

Vegan Nutrition Tracker (VegNT.com) will allow you to track what you eat, see what nutrients are missing and help you find the plant foods necessary to get those nutrients.

You can also share vegan meal plans with your friends or clients, create custom recipes and products. Embed nutritional data on your recipe page or forums.

What we do not do

We do NOT offer medical advice or pretend to help with various health problems.

We do not track iodine intake because the iodine content in plant foods is heavily dependent on the iodine in soil. To get adequate iodine in your diet make sure to consume iodised salt and seaweeds.

Are we biased? Where do we get our data from?

Since our mission is to help vegans stay healthy we are very serious about the accuracy of the information we provide. We don't do original research. All the information we provide is taken from authoritative public sources that can be double checked by anyone.

Nutritional data in foods is taken from the:
Agricultural Research Service - U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE.

The daily requirements for different age groups is from the:
National Institutes of Health - U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.

But be careful when someone shares a meal plan with you. It can contain custom foods or user recipes that contain custom foods. A custom food is created by the user and all the nutritional data is added by the user. A custom user food will always be preceded by this icon .
