Could you put up a bigger food database with European specific foods?

It would be great as I can only put in simple ingredients. I'd love to be able to add a specific store-bought juice or biscuit or something like that.
Thanks a lot.

    We do input many user submitted foods from Europe every day, so there are a quite a lot of Branded foods in our database that are European specific! You can submit labels to be added to our database as well! Create a custom food, then select "Publish food".

    We recently released a blog post about how to choose the best data for your needs here which I also linked to earlier in this forum thread (https://cronometer.com/blog/6-tips-getting-nutrition-data/ ) If your priority is to get the most detailed information for a food, I recommend choosing entries from the NCCDB in the Common Foods Tab.
    If your priority is to log foods exactly as the nutrition facts appear on the package, I would recommend using the barcode scanner feature on the mobile app or entering the bar code number into the search bar on the Web version. If you cannot find the corresponding nutrition information, you can create a custom food and enter the nutrition information manually as seen on your foods packaging, and save the data in your custom foods to easily enter it again the next time you eat the food. When creating a custom food, you can submit it for publishing to our public database for use by you and other users later!
