Allows to explore the medicinal value of diet and elucidate the synergistic effects of natural bioactive compounds on disease phenotypes. NutriChem is a database that contains food-compound pairs between some plant-based foods and phytochemicals, as well as the food-disease associations between some plant-based foods and diseases. It was generated by text mining of 21 million MEDLINE abstracts. The incorporation of confidence scores based on the availability of support from literature or patient records may serve as future update of NutriChem.
