periodically, manufacturers change their product formulation.

I find it easiest to enter my own values (and put the number of grams by weight, in case I have more or less when taking from a larger container, especially). That way I can continually check if needed, and know my numbers are correct.

Yeah the Sparkpeople Activia yogurt is entered incorrectly as well. Says 70 when the 100g container says 100.

I 2nd that the manufacture could have changed the product since the information was entered. I generally enter my own food, and even then! A product I entered in 2 years ago suddenly has information different from the EXACT SAME product I just bought over the weekend. Makes me wonder how much of my own entered stuff is incorrect now....

I had oikos greek fruit on bottom 5.3 oz.yogurt also, maybe by mistake you didn't choose the correct package details, mine calculated right , at 130 cals , although I have found incorect nutrition info. on some foods that spark members have put in data , only a few. Hope this helps.

If you used a sparkpeople generated entry, the data may have changed at the manufacturer. If you used a member-generated entry, they may have entered it incorrectly. I'd "Enter a food not listed" and use the package data to ensure you're close to accurate.

When I entered my breakfast items today, I found the Oikos yogurt that I ate, but when it was added to my food list, it shows 160 calories, but the container had 120 calories. Any ideas why there's a difference?
