    I posted a recipe here and also used it on Weight Watchers.com -- the values Food.com has on it are way off...

    It's only 3 points on weight watchers but if I enter the values Food.com posted on my recipe it would be SIXTEEN points.

    I suspect it might be how you entered the ingredients. I'll bet the WW version calls for light coconut milk - regular coconut milk is pretty high in fat.

    There is a glitch right now and I cannot look at the detailed nutritional analysis to see how the ingredients are lining up, but you should be able to check your own. Sometimes the software that is used for analysis reads a quantity incorrectly - three times the quantity shown, for example, which will throw things off. Take a look and seen if it looks correct. But also check to see whether you entered the ingredients in the same manner.

    There is a thread above for error in Nutritional Analysis - if you still think it is in error, then submit there. You can change the ingredients, if you need to, by using Submit a Correction.
