    Someone wanted to make my My Basic Noodle Bowl (With Variations) but wouldn't because it was 59 grams of fat per serving. icon_eek.gif
    I wouldn't eat it either if that were the case. I have put a note on the recipe preamble that it is out of whack but now I've found the right place to post it for correction. icon_cool.gif

    The recipe calls for 3 oz of meat and offers suggestions, beef, chicken, pork or shrimp. Even if I add up ALL the meats, add the egg it would still be closer to 40 grams and the recipe is not intended to use 12 oz of meat. The sodium is kind of crazy too for a single serving.

    Thanks!

    I have tried twice to correct this Garlic Chicken Pizza http://www.food.com/recipe/garlic-chicken-pizza-124149 so that Chicken is added to the Nutritional info. Can you please let me know what I am doing wrong.

    A recipe I posted just a few days ago:
    Sesame Chicken and Noodles in Mushroom Broth

    The nutrition information shows that 4 baby bok choy weigh 3360 grams- not even possible. That's 118 ounces, and these were less than a pound total, so showing over 10 times as much- please fix!

    Low Fat/Low Sodium Black Bean Soup

    I know this recipe is correct as interpreted by the software. But the recipe uses sodium-free broth, and this throws the sodium content way off.

    Dr. Galleon has submitted a correction to the ingredients list to change the no salt added chicken broth to low sodium chicken broth. Would it be possible to make sure this goes through?

    I just looked at The Shawnee Marina Reuben Sandwich #148038
    and noticed the ginormous calorie count. icon_eek.gif

    On closer inspection, I see 3 slices of pastrami weighs 213 grams,
    while 3 slices of corned beef weigh in at 85 grams. Big difference.
    Well, the calories are a bit less now. I fixed the data for pastrami, but it's still a high-calorie sandwich.

    Another recipe with a wacky calorie count. Pickling Spice #248751

    The details say that 2 tablespoons of allspice equals 200 grams. icon_eek.gif
    Peggy, the data for allspice has been updated, bringing it down to 12 grams in this recipe, and a huge drop in calories.

    I have a private recipe for Nacho Bean Soup #221163. I used the USDA wording from the database on http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list for the fat-free refried beans and reduced fat cheese. However, the nutritional detail shows fat in the refried beans and reports data on "cheese", ignoring the reduced fat.

    These errors are driving me crazy. I have found a site, http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php, that requires only the ingredients and # of servings to calculate nutritional value. It is easy to use and more accurate. I am seriously considering using it for my recipes instead of Food.com, since the nutritional value is why I came to this site in the first place.
    Lunch Lady, The problem is the way your ingredients were listed.

    1 (15 1/2 ounce) refried beans, canned, fat-free
    2 ounces cheese, Mexican, blend, reduced fat

    In order to properly recognize the ingredients, they should be typed like this:

    1 (15 1/2 ounce) canned fat-free refried beans
    2 ounces reduced-fat mexican cheese blend

    I updated your recipe ingredients, and the appropriate nutritional data is reflected in the recipe.

    Why aren't the yellow peppers included in the nutritional analysis?

    Chocolatl, the data for yellow bell peppers has been updated.

    There appears to be a significant error in the amount of carbs from mayonnaise in this recipe:

    Low-Carb Caesar Salad Dressing
    Our nutritional data shows 56.2 grams of carbs in the entire recipe. That's in line with the USDA's information:

    http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/show/590

    1 cup mayonnaise = 56.16 grams

    Keep in mind that's for the entire recipe, not one serving.

    In Tofu and Vegetable Stir Fry (one of my private recipes) the sugar is listed as 0 grams in the sidebar. But when I click "Detailed Nutrition Values" underneath the nutrition info, the sugar listed there is correct.
    Anne, I'm checking into this and will get back to you.

    I updated the recipe, and total fat is now 29.2 grams. Unfortunately, there is still a lot of sodium in the recipe. The culprits are the 2 cups of beef broth (1785mg); soy sauce (1005 mg), and the Ramen noodles (1731 mg). The recipe indicates the seasoning packet is not used, and that's a major contributor for the sodium. Unfortunately, the USDA does not break out the seasoning packet data so it's included in the overall ramen noodle sodium figure.

    Bill, the problem is the 3 cup measurement. The USDA does not provide nutritional statistics for cups for chicken. If you enter a weight, such as 8 ounces, we can calculate the nutritional information.

    Ingrid, The data for baby bok choy has been updated to reflect an average size of 40 grams each. That reduced the grams in your recipe significantly (160 grams)

    Chocolatl, it looks like the recipe correction was processed last week and the nutritional data was updated.
