trust 'common foods', or brand data (when the latter shows lower quantities)
Hi I normally would try to use Common Foods tab so as to get the most accurate micronutrient results. However I have come across one of my common foods that somehow isn't as good as it should be. Eg. 'Brunswick Wild Sardines in Olive Oil' : my Australian tin of it has only 74g drained weight (not 84g as per the pre-programmed Cronometer data ... but that is not a significant issue. ) What my problem is:
When i look at the average quantity per 100g of drained weight, Brunswick only shows 20.2g of protein. However when I look at all the Common Food varieties of sardines tinned in oil, drained, they all show superior protein levels at 24g, and other nutrients are generally higher than the Brunswick label too.
So should I just trust the Common Foods databases as-is ... or should I 'create a new food' using them as a foundation, but then downgrade what nutrients i have to the Brunswick label (eg. drop the protein level to 20) and just accept all other micronutrients at the higher value?
