Targets and colors
I was thinking that it might be useful when there is no target for RDA to set as the target the maximum limit value (UL) [if there is one] and the color to become green if it is lower than the target, or red if it exceeds it.
The logic is as follows. There are some nutrients, like Cholesterol, which is not needed to be consumed, so they have no RDA. It's ok if you eat a small amount, but you should not exceed the upper limit (UL). In this case, 200mg Cholesterol. It would be nice to see a green bar with percentage that shows how much do you have until you reach the dangerous upper limit. The green color will mean that any percentage is allready enough.
And I have another idea for a new nutrient: Total Fructose. It can be calculated as: (Sucrose / 2) + Fructose. Like Net Carbs are.
I understand that fructose is dangerous if it is eaten in large quantities... So I think we should watch it. This will be another nutrient with no RDA but with a UL, that will use the first feature. From what I read, it is said that one should keep fructose intake lower than 25-35g/day.
This is just a thought...
