Nutrient density: Nutrient density is a scale that was created to compare a food's nutrient worth to its caloric load. Foods that are low in calories but high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc will have a high nutrient density. The higher the density the "better" a food is for you (in theory). Foods like green vegetables have a high density while foods like cheese have a low density.
