FooDB is FAIR. Specifically, it is:

F1. (meta)data are assigned a globally unique and eternally persistent identifier.
All data and metadata in FooDB is assigned either a 5 digit globally unique FooDB Food identifier or a 6 digit globally unique FooDB Compound identifier. This identifier is searchable within the database and associated with all data in the online database. Furthermore, the identifier is associated with all data downloadable from the database.
F2. data are described with rich metadata.
All data in FooDB are described with rich metadata. Every compound, physical property, concentration and spectrum is described in detail. Structures, names, synonyms, food sources, descriptions, pathways, concentrations and other relevant data are all attached to the referential data. Additionally, scientific references are provided for each entry.
F3. (meta)data are registered or indexed in a searchable resource.
All the data and metadata in FooDB is indexed, viewable and registered through FooDB online database at
F4. metadata specify the data identifier.
All metadata entries in FooDB are directly linked to the FooDB identifier and associated content and spectral data.

A1 (meta)data are retrievable by their identifier using a standardized communications protocol.
All data and metadata in FooDB are retrievable from their FooDB identifier through the FooDB website. Similarly, all data in the FooDB may be downloaded in JSON, CSV, XML, SQL, mzML and/or nmrML format via FooDB’s download section through a standard internet communications protocol. All MS spectra in FooDB are also accessible via the internet through their SPLASH identifier. All chemical structure data is available in universally readable formats: SMILES, SDF, MOL, InChI, InChIKey and PDB formats.
A1.1 the protocol is open, free, and universally implementable.
The FooDB website is open and free and its data download operation is compatible with all modern web browsers. FooDB’s downloadable data is in multiple formats (JSON, CSV, XML, SQL, TXT, PNG, XML, mzML and/or nmrML) that are universally readable.
A1.2 the protocol allows for an authentication and authorization procedure, where necessary.
No authentication or authorization is required to access or download FooDB’s data.
A2 metadata are accessible, even when the data are no longer available.
All of FooDB’s metadata are linked or linkable to more permanent data sources (PubMed, PubChem, ChEBI HMDB, ITIS, etc). The availability of freely downloadable data (and metadata) for FooDB ensures that its metadata will exist and be accessible for beyond the lifetime of the database.

I1. (meta)data use a formal, accessible, shared, and broadly applicable language for knowledge representation.
All textual data and metadata in FooDB are written in English, all spectral data are in the nmrML and mzML exchange format, all MS spectra are referrable via SPLASH identifiers, all chemical structure data are available in SMILES, SDF, MOL, InChI, InChIKey and PDB formats, all images are stored in PNG format, all nomenclature for compounds and spectral data follows standard IUPAC nomenclature, ontologies or vocabularies used to describe these entities.
I2. (meta)data use vocabularies that follow FAIR principles.
All data and metadata in FooDB use ontologies, nomenclature and vocabularies that are open, findable, accessible, interoperable and re-usable.
I3. (meta)data include qualified references to other (meta)data.
All data and metadata in FooDB are fully referenced with detailed descriptions of their provenance and sources.

R1. meta(data) have a plurality of accurate and relevant attributes.
All data and metadata in FooDB deposited by its curation team have been carefully curated and vetted by multiple skilled curators. All data deposited into FooDB have been automatically checked for accuracy and consistency using comprehensive data checking software. All data in FooDB have attributes that are relevant, up-to-date and accurate to the best of the FooDB curation team’s knowledge.
R1.1. (meta)data are released with a clear and accessible data usage license.
All data and metadata in FooDB are released under the Creative Commons (CC) Attribution-NonCommercial (NC) 4.0 International Licensing condition.
R1.2. (meta)data are associated with their provenance.
All data and metadata in FooDB have detailed descriptions of their provenance and sources
