I agree with the brand part - it makes it easier to know which ones to pick. Also - I typically try to go with things that are entered by SP rather than other users. Where this isn't possible - I do like to compare labels once. So I'll look and see what someone else entered, make sure it matches and then continue to use that specific one from there on out. In some cases - everything entered by others isn't even close - so I go ahead and enter it myself from the label so that in the future I know it's correct.

If you know the brand name (Kroger, Publix, Perdue,Trader Joe's, Kirkwood) then going with that member entered selection might be the best option.

Remember that you are provided a calorie and macronutrient range. Nutrition labels are never exact and are allowed a small margin of error so most likely any of these options for boneless chicken thigh will be fairly close compared to just searching for chicken.

I'd love to know how people determine which selection to make when searching for food to track in nutrition tracker? For example, when I search for boneless chicken thighs multiple options come up. I just want to be sure I'm accurately recording my foods.
