Redundant or not, I won't be stopping entering all my food. As you said, people don't always enter all the information into the interface. I will not be looking through other peoples entries just to see if I can find the one that matches my food when I can add it and know it is correct.

The same product can be different in Canada than in the USA. Companies change their recipes according to national tastes.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Actually someone added it in and just put the calories total in right and the sodium total in wrong and in all the other fields they put 0. Either they added it when they weren't done, or they entered only what was important to them. Hope we all try to enter completely and correctly. Its redundant for EVERYONE to enter the same common item over and over to the database. That would make the searching way too long, getting thru hundreds of the same item!

I never use items entered by other people. If I am using a specific brand, I always enter it myself. That way, if it isn't updated or wrong, then it is something I can fix myself.

probably depends on

- when it was entered to begin with (in case the formula has changed)
- where it is sold (various countries have different formulations)

enter your own amounts to be sure, if they differ

I noticed that on some of them, too. I noticed that now you can 'check' the count and make suggestions on what is wrong. Most of my stuff is in favorites that I had added in (except for fruits and veggies; I buy a lot of store-brand products) so I don't worry about it too much unless it's something that I put in a while ago. Over the years manufacturers have a habit of changing serving sizes and the counts change with it :(

I was checking my nutrition report and noticed that one of the protein shakes I drink, was listed with incorrect sodium and potassium in the tracker search choices. Now I will have to watch out for choosing items loaded up my members, that might be incorrect. I like to see my sodium counts and knew that my shake was only 260, not the 370 that was listed in my report.
I looked up the label and double checked it.
