fortified American food data - for Europeans, all crono data is false! (e.g. bread)
in America many foods are fortified by law. For example bread is. in Europe it is not ( I can definitely vouch for Germany, Hungary and Switzerland).
-> tenthousande of European users will have all the nutritional analysis with cronometer completely wrong and valueless.
Dear developers of cronometer, I kindly invite you to address this problem.
while the problem is obvious, here is some example data, what a grave error we are talking about:
wheat bread (free German official database):
example: vitamin B1: 0.09 mg / 100g
Food #450733, Data Source: NCCDB
example: vitamin B1: 0.41 mg / 100g
my only explanation for this dramatic difference is that chronometer bread must be fortified, without saying this.
I wonder why nobody is talking about this on the Crono forum. this is a dramatic error!! this renders nutritional analysis by almost all Europeans entirely valueless (barring very low carb dieters, and barring researchers who are aware of the difference and import free German food data). Tenthousands of European users of Crono must think that their vitamin intake is okay when it may be absolutely not.
(Ps: just a side remark in case you wonder how it is possible that Europeans did not go extinct :-) it is simply that American-style white bread (= toast bread) is widely considered junk food in Europe, and educated people or health conscious people would not likely eat it. Here, bread is normally bought not at a supermarket in a plastic bag but in a bakery, made of real grains, with some of the bran (or even all) milled into the flour. having said these, people who do eat white junk food bread in Europe, are much worse off nutritionally.)
