Nutrients not showing up!
Hi, if I type in Tesco Houmous - it only lists the energy/carbs/fat/fibre/protein/sodium.
And this entirely misses all the folate, manganese, copper, iron etc.
Also - if I input Longley Farm banana yoghurt... the basic macros show up - but no calcium etc...
What am I doing wrong?! Thanks in advance
Branded products oftentimes don't list full nutrient profiles on their nutrition labels, and because we do not analyze foods for their data here at Cronometer we cannot fill in the blanks or know what the values are for nutrients not listed on the label.
The best way to get the most nutrition information is to use our most comprehensive database - the NCCDB. By performing text-based searches when adding foods, most whole foods can be found from the NCCDB which lists many, many more vitamins and minerals in their nutrient profiles.
