NutritionData sold to Conde Nast

John and Lori Johnson have sold their excellent website, NitritionData, to Conde Nast. My first thought is congratulations to them. Second, let’s hope the new owner doesn’t screw it up.

In case you haven’t been there, NutritionData is a great website for comparing the nutritional content of foods – and much more. It’s graphically oriented and has an extensive list of foods – including the most complete list of fast foods I’ve seen.

My favorite page is the comparison of apples to oranges, which proves they aren’t really as different as some would have you believe.
