I guess this falls in technical help. The three supplements I use, Deva Vegan Multivitamin, Deva Vegan Glucosamine, and CVS Biotin 5000 mcg, are not in FS's database. I went through the tedious work of adding them, and then they disappeared, i.e. when I start to write them in on my phone I don't get the autofill and the bar code doesn't work even though I thought I'd registered it. What did I do wrong? Also, how do I fill out all nutritional content? What I did fill out before it did not register was just basic macro stuff - I want to be able to look at all the vitamins and minerals I'm consuming each day.

I have photos of the labels. Would any of you at FS like to put these in your database for me? Smile

Or just tell me how.

Unless your supplements contain calories, they are outside of the intent of this website.
The food database is meant for food items.

The food tracker is intended to track calories/carbohydrates/protein/fat.

Is this possible now? I'm thinking not since I cannot figure out how to do this.

I also tried to add foods I eat that are not in food data base.. I added everything calories, fats, etc. and it does not add the food to the data base.. Am I missing something? TIA
