Sesame seed, for instance. I'm entering a recipe for Baba Ghanoush, I'm adding ingredients, I look for sesame seed. There are hundreds of sesame seed rolls, bagels and buns but no plain sesame seed. The online USDA nutrition database has sesame seeds, whole, dried. I start to create a new ingredient, and I stop. This is the twenty-first century and I'm doing a digital format conversion by retyping. That is not the way. What is the way? Is there a better way?

Later: Uh, oh, there's a little quirk I didn't know about. Bug, feature, whatever. If I say I want all words to match, the search is strict: seed won't find seeds. If I say I want any word to match, the search is loose: sesame seed finds sunflower seeds even though neither word exactly matches. It also finds the sesame seeds I needed, in the USDA database that I didn't think was being used. What they hey, whatever works. Happy New Year, everybody.
