The Icelandic database on the chemical content of food is accessible on Matís' website

ÍSGEM stores data on nutrients in food on the Icelandic market and has been a key tool for nutrition research, official advice on diet, nutrition labeling and product development in food companies. Individuals also download information about food in the database on Matís' website. The first model of ÍSGEM was taken into use in 1987 and the foundation is now under the supervision of Matís.
