Most Accurate Calorie Count Egg

By Terry Dunkle, DietPower Editor-In-Chief*

"Calorie count egg" will find you hundreds of websites and software programs promising to show you the calorie content of eggs and thousands of other foods. The most accurate of these calorie-lookup tools are those used by dieters who closely monitor their nutrition.

Here are five factors to consider when choosing a calorie-lookup tool:

Food Selection

The best calorie-lookup tools are those that cover at least 20,000 foods. Be careful, though: some inflate their figures by listing duplicate foods under different names.

Accuracy of Data

Steer clear of calorie count lists that let users to contribute data. These are notoriously inaccurate.

In addition, check the date when the database was last revised. For generic foods such as eggs, it should have been updated at least once every two years.

Search Speed

If "calorie count egg" finds you a lot of duplicates, beware—the database you are searching probably allows users to contribute foods by keying in facts from the labels. You don't want to waste your time wading through dupes every time you search for a food.


The best lookup tools show you not only calories, but other nutrients. Look for one that displays at least the 12 "label" nutrients—or better yet, one that covers those and 20 or 30 others.


Don't pay for a calorie counter without making sure it offers a money-back guarantee for at least 30 days. (DietPower, advertised on this page, has a one-year guarantee.)
