Abstract This research work was aimed at developing an expert system for determining the nutritional value of foods. The software is an expert system with a database containing an expert knowledge of food and its nutritional value. The system runs on computer devices (laptop, desktop, and mobile devices) and offers smart features that evaluate the nutritional condition of foods by assessing their physical and chemical characteristics. We explain the inference engine process used to develop the system, overview the system architecture and selected design tools, and summarize some preliminary results from the implementation. The new system was developed in PHP and MySQL. This language was chosen because of its wealth of libraries for developing web-based applications.
