USDA, Fooddata Central, Poblano peppers
I cook with Poblano peppers alot. Usually I log "Jalapeno peppers, raw" hoping that is the most complete nutrient profile available.
Today on the USDA website I found "Jalapeno peppers, raw" in the Fooddata Central section.
The source is the Food and Nutrient Database for Dietary Studies by the USDA Agricultural Research Service, Beltsville, Md.
On the page linked above it shows in part:
Carbohydrate, by difference 1.11 g
Fiber, total dietary 0.408 g
Sugars, total including NLEA 0.576 g
I entered the data as a custom food. Not sure I understand the meaning of "Carbohydrate, by difference."
1. On the page to enter data for custom food I just entered those as Carbs, Fiber, and Sugar. Correct?
2. Does Cronometer consider the Food and Nutrient Database for Dietary Studies reliable?
3. Any chance that dataset could be included in the Cronometer database?
