Adding new food - units of energy only uses old-fashioned (US?) units

When entering a new food, only kcal is available to enter, not kJ, which is the SI unit of food energy. This means that every time I want to add a new food, I have to go and do the conversion (unless I'm missing something, somewhere) which is a major friction point that means it's tempting to not bother.

If this could be added, that would be great.

    Hi Juice,

    If you are creating your custom foods on the website, you have the option to select different label types, including European or Australia/NZ. These labels include kJ so you can enter it there.

    Or you can scroll down to the General section below to enter in kJ no matter which label is chosen:

    We will work on including this option on the mobile app as well.
