Adding new foods

How can I add food to the database myself?

Click on the green “+” button in the bottom bar.

Then click Custom food in the popupmenu.

A screen appears titled Can't find a food, ingredient or drink? Add it yourself!

When adding a new food, drink or supplement, you need to provide the following information: name, serving size (grams or milliliters), fat (g), protein (g), total carbs (g), fiber (g) and brand (optional).

In order to improve the accuracy of the data provided by our users, we require that the sum of the grams of fat, protein and total carbs not be bigger than the serving size (but it can be smaller).

If you get errors when trying to add a new food, see the New food errors questions.
