WESTPORT, Conn., May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- dLife, the number-one diabetes community resource, today announced the launch of the dLife Recipe Finder and Food Look-Up, the world's largest and most comprehensive online nutrition database and look-up tool for people with diabetes. Visit http://www.dlife.com/nutrition and search ingredients, prepared foods or even fast food to get in-depth nutritional analysis for more than 25,000 foods and access to over 10,000 diabetes friendly recipes. This revolutionary offering creates a complete one-stop resource to help people track daily carbohydrates in an effort to maintain an optimal diabetes diet and for overall healthy living.

Food is the greatest challenge for people with diabetes. It's a daily struggle to closely monitor food intake in order to control blood sugar. dLife's Food Look-Up lets users search the massive 25,000-plus food database by ingredient, prepared meals, and even popular fast food items. With just a click, one gets a food's detailed nutrition breakdown of carbohydrates, calories, sodium, protein, sugars, fats, cholesterol, vitamins, minerals, and more.

"dLife's Food Look-Up is what patients and their educators have been yearning for! It's a common complaint that counting carbohydrates and understanding nutritional analysis is quite confusing. This is really a quick and easy tool to help anyone manage their diabetes and for an overall healthy lifestyle," said Donna Rice, MBA, R.N, CDE, and the past president of the American Association of Diabetes Educators. "This is a breakthrough to make it both easy and convenient for people with diabetes and their caregivers to track and manage what they just ate, or to plan ahead for daily meals."

"dLife's Food Look-Up is not only for people with diabetes -- it's the most thorough resource for health-oriented people interested in gaining a better understanding of exactly what they are eating every day," added Rice.

In addition to the Food Look-Up, dLife has redesigned its search engine of 10,000 diabetic recipes at dLife.com, including a special recipe customization tool that allows for instant re-calculation of ingredients based on serving amounts, plus expanded recipe category search capabilities, including Low Carb, Very Low Carb, Low Calorie, and Low Saturated Fat options. Visit http://www.dlife.com and click on recipes to get started.
