Hi!

Sorry about that. I think I know what may have happened.

After you clicked on the link to "Enter a Food Not Listed" and completed and saved that item's nutrition info, you would have been returned to the "add a food to your recipe" page and your new food was shown in the search results box. I'm guessing that you then entered the next food. But, what needs to happen is that you must click on the "Add Food" button on that page before doing the next food.

You can go back and edit your recipe to add in the missing foods. If you follow the above tip, all your foods should be saved. Maybe do just one first and check to be sure it saves and is included in the nutrition info.

Let me know if I didn't explain this clearly. Good luck with your recipe! Was it something yummy?

I just entered a recipe, and some of the ingredients are ones that are not already in the database. So, I added the (new) ingredients one by one, and entered all of the nutritional information for each ingredient...then, pressed "save" as instructed.
When I go to look at my recipe, the new ingredients don't even show up, and they are not included at all in the nutritional value of my recipe. The only ingredients that show up are the ones that were already in the system. Help, please!
