    In the detailed analysis it shows 1 lb of graham crackers as being almost 6000 grams - more like 12 lbs!
    OMG, that would be one heavy bar! I fixed the data for graham crackers, and the recipe is much lighter.

    When the site used to be RecipeZaar.com I used to be able to add in the nutritional information for ingredients that weren't already there. This used to be very handy in calculating the carbohydrate content for my personal recipes as my son is an Insulin Dependant Diabetic. How do I get the Nutritional Values for the item in the recipe which is in my Private Recipes collection (it is Passionfruit Syrup tin 170gm). I have all the Nutritional Information straight off the can here if that helps?

    We can add new ingredients to our database, but nutritional data is limited to what's in the USDA's nutritional database. Unfortunately, passionfruit syrup is not in the USDA's database at this time.

    Sorry, the USDA doesn't have that either. The closest ingredients are:

    Passion fruit, purple, raw
    Passion fruit juice, purple, raw
    Passion fruit juice, yellow, raw
    CAMPBELL Soup Company, V8 SPLASH Juice Drinks, Guava Passion Fruit

    Please note that the nutritional information for Orange-Dijon Broccoli is way off. It looked suspicious to me, so I entered into my private recipes and it came up with something totally different. This can be quite problematic for people with diabetes, so I wanted to bring this to your attention. Thanks.

    Thanks for pointing out this recipe. The nutritional data has been updated. The mustard and red wine vinegar values were off and have been corrected.

    Lasagna With Roasted Beets and Herb Béchamel - The site isn't including fat-free ricotta cheese or no-boil lasagna noodles in the nutritional breakdown. Is it possible for someone to force this addition for me, please?

    No, because those items are not found in the USDA nutritional database.

    Hi Melanie,

    Chocolatl is correct, the recipe does not display nutritional values for those ingredients because the USDA has not yet added them to their database. In this instance, the USDA has data for regular and part-skim ricotta cheese, but not for the fat free variety. The USDA also does not have data specifically for no-boil lasagna noodles.

    You can read more about how the nutritional data is calculated here:

    http://greek.food.com/recipe/greek-potatoes-oven-roasted-and-delicious-87782

    It's listed here as # 3 most popular low-calorie recipe

    Maybe it's just me, but 544 calories seems large, especially for something
    that is mostly used as a side-dish.

    Hi hecktarzuli, The data we're using for the ingredients is correct. What is more subjective is serving size, and that's up to the posting chef. One issue for this recipe is the calories were being calculated for 6-8 servings. When a range is listed, we use the lower number, which in this case is 6. I think 1 large potato per person is more realistic, so I changed the servings to simply 8. That brings down the calories to 408 per serving.

    Most likely, one large potato per person is more than I'd expect an average serving to be, so your calories per serving may be less than 408.

    The Low-Calorie recipes are computer-selected based on a formula that includes calories per 100 grams and other nutritional data. In general the calculation provides good results, but occasionally a recipe ends up in the low-calorie category that doesn't seem to appropriate even though it was selected using the same mathematical calculation.

    Hi Kathy,
    Could you correct the calorie count for recipe # 232088 Potato Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies....the recipe makes 4.5 doz (54) cookies, the cal count should be 129.39 per cookie - not the 1746.1 calories posted.

    Does anyone really make a 1523 gram (53 3/4 ounce) cookie?? icon_eek.gif LOL
    http://www.food.com/recipe/nutrition?rid=232088

    It seems it was computed for 4.5 cookies instead of 4.5 Doz (54 cookies)

    Hi Dee! There was no serving information entered, so the nutritional data was using the yield information, which was the calories for a half dozen cookies. I think the average person is more interested in how many calories are in a single cookie than what a half dozen cookies would be. I updated the yield so it's properly computed by our software (4.5 dozen rather than 4 half dozen) and added the number of servings (54). The nutritional analysis now shows the calories per 1 cookie serving (129 calories).

    Super Bowl Chili please - big difference per recipe page per serving value and the value for the same serving shown when you go to the detailed breakdown. Thanks.
