I Can't Find an Ingredient in Your Database
If you are entering a recipe and can't find a particular ingredient in our database:
Type in the name of the ingredient, quantity, unit of measure, and category. If the ingredient is not in our database yet, or you haven't added it previously as a custom, you'll notice under "Nutrition from" it will indicate
No Matches Found.
Click on No Matches Found. You'll be taken to the Nutrition tab. From here you can either:
- Search via our Nutrition API to select a match and then click the Continue button.
- Enter your own nutrition facts for the ingredient and click the Continue button.
Our Nutrition API scores each food returned by your query based upon your item's title, unit of measure, and category. The most compatible foods are marked with a green checkmark while incompatible foods are marked with an orange exclamation.
After clicking the
Continue button you'll be taken back to the
Details tab. When you're ready click the
Add Ingredient button.
