There are a lot of changes in the nutrients as measured in the year 1987 in the Indian Food Composition Tables and the one in the year 2017. This paper looks into understanding the nutritional value changes in different kinds of food over time and also, tries to emphasize the need for anyone working in human nutrition or soil health to understand that there are significant changes in the nutrients before giving recommendations on diets or to explore the impacts of using fertilizers or pesticides and the nutrient level changes. This paper identified that there are significant changes in the nutrient contents, particularly energy, riboflavin and niacin and not negligible changes in the other nutrients such as calcium, iron, moisture, phosphorus, protein and thiamine of Indian food over the years 1987 to 2017.
