Thanks for the feedback, I'll pass it along to the team. I believe that most nutrition labels have that information listed as percentages rather than milligrams/micrograms/etc, so it wouldn't be as easy to track those for foods using the other form of measurement. When you add or edit those goals in your Nutrition Tracker page, there is an info button that has info about that particular nutrient and usually has info about the range given as well.

On the nutrient lists, at the bottom of the tracker for myNutriants, most of the micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, etc.),are tracked by percentage of RDA. Problem is, RDA for whom? The NIH lists differing amounts based on gender, age and health. It would be much simpler and far more useful if we could track by actual milligrams/micrograms/etc. The "info” on the individual nutrients (where you can select a custom range) can provide the RDA for those that want or need to know that, then they can enter then appropriate range based on that, if they choose.

Wondering what others think?
