Zoutrition is an online tool that can help you make wise choices to meet your nutritional goals when dining in Campus Dining Service locations. You will find this tool helps to identify and select well-balanced meals, check the nutritional content of your food choices, identify possible allergens and food intolerances and select preferences for specific types of diets such as vegetarian or vegan.

Sunshine Sushi is not operated by Campus Dining Services. The Zoutrition software allows us to enter the nutritional information for everything we purchase and recipes our chefs develop. Because Campus Dining Services does not purchase or prepare the dishes at Sunshine Sushi, we are unable to use Zoutrition to reflect that information at this time.
