Including K2 in milk nutritional data?

Vitamin k2 is abundant in Milk, see this study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5998353/

And if you don't want to read that study, here's a synopsis:

Fifty of the dairy samples used in this study were provided by USDA Nutrient Data Laboratory, which conducts the National Food and Nutrition Analysis Program were used in this study.

Total vitamin K contents of milk types:
full-fat milk (4% fat) - 38.1 ± 8.6
2%-fat milk - 19.4 ± 7.7
1%-fat milk - 12.9 ± 2.0
nonfat milk - 7.7 ± 2.9

Per 100 grams, meaning 1 cup (245 grams) of whole fat milk has a whopping (38.1 * 2.45) 93µg of vitamin K2.

USDA recommendations are 90-120µg per day. A single cup of milk.

My point being here is... How can Cronometer be improved to take these values into consideration? Scraping data from studies like these and creating their own nutritional data would be a great idea.
