    Yikes! That's one high calorie count. This one is proving a little more difficult to fix, but I'll keep working on it.

    I"m not new to the site (in fact I"m a "legacy" from recipezaar! who finally decided to give Food.com a chance!).

    Anyway, I AM new to entering my own recipes. I tried entering my first recipe (just a private one,so I could check the nutritional values). However, the system doesn't give any value for "whey protein" or "whey protein powder"....how do I find out what of many name versions for an ingredient is the one that will actually yield values? Both of these are listed as possible ingredients when I do an ingredient search. Or is it just trial and error????

    This basic info about the system will help me greatly in the future..and of course, since this particular recipe is a protein smoothie, the specific information is essential to getting anything like useful data for the recipe!

    THANKS!!

    (if this has been asked/answered before, I apologize. I did not see a "search the topic" option)

    Our nutritional information is based on the USDA nutritional information database. Unfortunately, the USDA does not have values for whey protein powder. The USDA only has information for these similar ingredients:

    Muscle Milk light protein powder
    Muscle Milk protein powder

    The ingredient list has the pork as being 550 kg, I am sure grams was meant instead.

    I posted a recipe here and also used it on Weight Watchers.com -- the values Food.com has on it are way off...
    http://www.food.com/recipeprint.do?rid=496896

    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's the coconut milk. I think what the recipe calls for is the coconut milk that is found in the dairy case, as a non-dairy substitute for fresh milk. I suspect the database recognizes it only as the canned coconut milk, which is a different product.

    Duonyte is correct, it was the coconut milk that was not being recogized correctly. The recipe software does not recognize the text after the comma when identifying ingredients, so when the ingredient looked like this, the data for regular coconut milk was used:

    4 cups coconut milk, So Delicious, sugar-free, Original

    I changed the ingredient to this:

    4 cups so delicious original sugar-free coconut milk

    Now it's being interpreted correctly, although we don't yet have the nutritional data for this product in our database from the USDA.

    Hello, the serving size for the Banana Streusel Muffins (Banana Streusel Muffins) should be 95 grams per serving and not 950 grams. That's one BIG muffin. This would really throw off my calorie count. Everything else looks good in the recipe. icon_wink.gif

    The nutritional data can get peculiar when only a yield and no serving number is entered. I updated the recipe to 10 servings and a yield of 10 muffins. Your 950 gram muffin is now 95 grams.
