How do I use the metric for "beta hydroxybutyrate"?

How do I know how many to count? I have alot of ketones in me, and there is a number associated with that, but is that the same as the amount I am ingesting?

    Just a word of warning when tracking the nutrient value for BHB. This is the nutrient value contained in the food listing - we have only recently added this to our list of nutrients and it is only listed in a select few ketone supplements. Your Blood ketone or Urine Ketone values will be very different than the BHB value listed in a diary entry for a supplement.

    Okay, so the numbers mean different things. But how do I use it?
    Do I just not do anything to it until/unless I am taking exogenous Ketones?
