Nutrition needs in space

I'm curious about calorie needs, given weightlessness, and if there are any peculiarities with respect to protein, fats, vitamins and minerals. Is extra calcium needed for long-duration missions?

I picture your job as a much, much more complicated version of what I had to go through planning for backpacking trips!
Is nutritional information (calories, fat, sodium, etc.) for food items consumed by the astronauts publicly available? And is there a place on the NASA web site devoted to information about space food and diet?
