I would like to request an updated (and ideally, available online) version of the "The Philippine Food Composition Tables 1997". As per your website on, the said book is out-of-print. 

We the public would like to have access to its contents online so that there will be no need to request the physical book. The food nutritional information is something beneficial to be accessed online. In this regard, we hope to get an updated list and nutrition information as well.
