To me (JMO) the Tracker has gotten worse over time. Seems like a lot of people feel it is necessary to enter everything they eat/drink and then share it with the world. lol I wish there was a way to exclude the user-entered entries, when I look up a food. As far as I can tell, you can sort showing only those, but there is no option to exclude those. At least you can tell which ones they are, because the user name is included.
You can also verify user-entered entries for accuracy and then comment on what's wrong with the entry.
Anyway, I always try to look for a Spark generated entry, as opposed to those entered by individual members. The Spark ones are updated from the USDA database. When I find the right thing, I add it to my "Favorites" so I don't have to look for it again. Tedious, yes. But most of the time, I'm eating and drinking pretty much the same stuff. So up-front, there's time involved.
