I have entered a lot of gluten free foods manually into the tracker. It is a lot of work but it well help you in the long run. For things like gluten free breads where you eat one slice it is best to great a recipe, you well have to manually enter the nutrition data for each ingredient if you can not find it. Most products have the listed on the package. And then save the recipe as one of your favorites in your nutrition tracker.

hey all... I use alot of GF foods and one place I find the nutrition info is my local grocery stores website.
www.wegmans.com
they sell a ton of GF foods and flours and they list all the nutrition data. If you do a search for your food, it might come up!

I just searched for sorghum, they have Bob's Red Mill sorghum flour. :)
I LOVE Wegmans.

For my other regular foods that I know I cook gluten free, I just create my own recipes but I don't share them, that way I can get the proper info but I don't have to be all neat and clean in my recipe text, cuz it's just for me.

I've also tried nutritiondata.com and had some luck, but not tons...they don't include stevia/agave nectar, sorghum or others.

Thanks.

Looks like a good resource. I was able to find most of my ingredients. The trick will be just multiplying the serving size to fit into my recipe.

I will use this along with the recipe calculator in spark recipes...

I do enter a lot of my own foods but sometimes I just estimate what it might be and make a close choice.

I wish Spark People had a separate food plan for GF members. One thing you can do is enter the food you use by hand on the Nutrition Tracker Page. You can also put in your own recipes with ingredients that you use frequently and the nutrition info can be automatically figured.

I have been trying to use the Nutrition tracker and have been having a difficult time because almost NONE of the GF foods that I use or make things with are in the database... for example, rice flour is not in there neither is tapioca flour which I use ALL the time. So I am having a had time even calculating the nutritional value for recipes that I make (pancakes, waffles, bread, etc.)

Any suggestions?
Thanks
