This comprehensive document provides detailed information on 47 nutrients in over 400 commonly consumed Tanzanian foods and local dishes. Created by a collaborative effort of the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences, the Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre, and the Harvard School of Public Health, these food composition tables will be useful to scientists seeking to better understand and analyze Tanzanians’ dietary intake, as well as to nutrition practitioners and food manufacturers seeking to develop healthier recipes and foods. The names of all the foods and dishes have been translated into Kiswahili, French, and Portuguese, to facilitate their wider distribution in sub-Saharan countries.
