You're welcome!

Yes, I believe it is available to import right after you share it. If you enter a recipe in the Recipe Calculator and share it (something different than what you asked about), that can take up to 24 hours to be in the searchable database, but I believe when just entering foods that are shared it happens right away.

Hi Coach Denise,

Thank you for the info! I wasn't aware that there were already instructions in the Q/A. Thanks for pointing that out. It seems that answers my initial question and resolves my issue.

Lastly, after sharing your food, how long should it take to show up for others? Is it basically instantaneous?

Yes, you are able to do that on the website too. This page has info on how to share manually entered foods: www.sparkpeople.com/community/help_answer.

Hello,

I've noticed that when adding new foods and their nutritional facts on the app, there is an option to share the information with others. However, that option doesn't appear to exist when performing the same function on the website. Is that option located somewhere else on the website possibly and I'm missing it? Or if not, are there any plans to add this functionality? I eat a lot of the same foods that my wife does, and she also uses this tracker. So being able to share newly added foods would be greatly beneficial to us and I'm sure for others as well.
