Visualize Nutrition in the Periodic Table of Elements

The periodic table of the elements created by Dmitri Mendeleev has been in use for 150 years. To celebrate the sesquicentennial of this valuable chemistry tool, use the Wolfram Language to visualize and compare the nutrition content of foods on the periodic table.

Start with a blueprint of the modern periodic table of elements.

Check the blueprint's contents by creating a simple graphics expression.
