Featured Sites:

MuscleSurf - offers many nutritional supplements at greatly reduced prices. They have a full line of supplements for weightlifters and other athletes.  The site even includes "Information Guides" describing various products, "What's the best ...?" articles to help you pick out the best high-quality, reasonably priced brand, customer reviews of products, and other helpful buying guides.

Nutrient Data Laboratory Food Composition Data - "Search  for values in the USDA Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, Release 13."

NutritionFocus - "Your complete source for nutritional information." By Solgar, maker of supplements, so this site is somewhat bias, but it does have quite a bit of helpful information.

Omega-3, Omega-6 - "in Oils Nuts Seeds. Essential Fatty Acids."  Helpful info.

But note that this site does sell supplements, so some of the info might be a little slanted.
