Add A Supplement


Im trying to add a supplement to cronometer. It's not in the index, so I was going to add the food myself. But the active ingredient, Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR), is not listed in the nutrition options. How can I go about adding this?

    Hello @Jenmaz ,
    When we have enough valid data available for any nutrient we do not currently track we will add it as an option. Unfortunately, we don't have the data for Acetyl-L-Carnitine from our primary sources for our database. We do not analyse nutrients here at Cronometer, therefore we must rely upon these sources for our database.
    You can still add your supplement to your daily diary, but the ingredient will not appear in your nutrition breakdowns.
    You can add custom foods by following these steps: https://cronometer.com/help/foods/#addfood. After saving your custom food, you can submit it to us for publication (using the gear menu in the top-right of the food editor).
    On the mobile app, use the barcode scanner to create custom foods and submit them more easily.,
    We have a curation team dedicated to reviewing the foods and supplements being submitted and we will gladly add yours to our database once it has been reviewed!
