A nutrition composition database was developed for packaged food products sold in five major Kenyan supermarkets. The research team collected data using the FoodSwitch app; a total of 6,000 products were categorized in accordance with the Global Food Monitoring Group system. Nutrition information for each product was obtained by scanning the label to upload it into the FoodSwitch database. Mean sodium data for 28 product categories was purchased from FoodSwitch by Resolve to Save Lives.
Data was collected by the George Institute for Global Health through the FoodSwitch program and is not publicly available.
