Add nicotine as a nutrient

Caffeine is supported, why not nicotine? Would be useful to be able to track it.

    Is there data on nicotine content of, well, anything?

    Data on nicotine content in smokeless tobacco products seems to be readily available (see, e.g., table 1 of this study). I suspect there's similar data out there regarding nicotine content in cigarettes. Other products such as Zyn and nicotine gum identify the nicotine content on the product label.

    I doubt, however, that any of this information is collected the database that Cronometer uses (NCCDB, USDA, CNF, etc.).

    That's true, there are no tobacco and nicotine products in the food databases. I would recommend tracking these items as a custom biometric for now. You can enter in the dose when you consume these items to view your intake in a graph in the Trends tab to see your intake over time.

    I didn't know that custom biometrics would show up in the charts. Thank you.
