I always go with the food label in front of me .... Sometimes there can be quite a difference and I don't want to start 'cheating.'

If you compare the amounts and it's the same; use those already entered.
If not, as said, enter your own.
You never know where the person who put the info in lives (if it wasn't a SP entered item, but entered by a member instead).

Not only do manufacturers change their formulation occasionally, different countries have different rules regarding ingredients.

Takes longer, but I usually enter my own - especially if I know I'm going to be using it regularly

you follow the food label. the manufacturers change their labels when they change their recipes and they certainly don't notify sp when they do it. plus, different regions have different recipes and that often means slightly different calorie counts.
also, if the entry has a username beside it that means another person entered the info in. and there are a lot of people on here who are quite bad at data entry if those entries are any indication. add to that that there currently isn't a way to weed out old entries and you have a lot of options that aren't accurate anymore.
so use what is in front of you. it takes a little more time to type in, but you'll have the correct info.

I am finding that when I go to enter food items I eat into the food tracker what SP has listed varies compared to what the label says ( on measured out portions). So what do I follow the food label or what is in SP? In some case it can be a considerable amount different.
