Why does Chronomter show zero potassium in ground beef?
Update 40 minutes after posting the question below - I had specifically chosen the 'Sprouts 85/15 grass fed ground beef' and that specific listing doesn't have most of the vitamins and mineral values listed, but other 85/15 ground beef listings do, so I will just choose another listing that has complete info. Still learning chronometer...
~~A simple Google search shows that there are 318 mg potassium in 100 grams of 85/15 ground beef, but Chronometer shows zero (0) grams, does anybody know why? I have not checked the accuracy of any of the other vitamins/minerals against a Google search, but this caught my attention. Today was my first time using Chronometer, and this discrepancy concerns me.
Thank you for any help!~~
As you noticed, brand name items frequently have incomplete info because they only provide what they are required to put on the nutrition label.

Thank you Comanchesue!
@WillMore I have found it best to choose Cronometer's "Ground Beef" versus the brand name...as you will get all 82 nutrients versus only the 15 ingredients companies are required to put on their labels...looks for the lab beaker icon next to ingredients.
