Food scales in toronto?

hungryabbey Nov 22, 2008 09:41 AM

Im studying to become a dietician and would like to know where I can get a really good food scale at a not outrageous price. I would prefer that it had a calorie feature ( database of foods that has the nutritional information built in) and can be found somewhere near the east end or downtown area. Thanks in advance!

        I needed a metric scale this year and bought a simple Starfrit at Zellers for $16. It is good to 5 kg. and like any electronic scale converts to imperial easily.
        Home Outfitters has a good selection, but no database ones. Perhaps the SLM store will have it.
