What if the food I'm looking for a food that is not included in the database?

Currently, the main food database of the FNRI Nutrition Counseling Service contains only the food items listed in the 1997 Philippine Food Composition Table and the USA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference Release 27. As an alternative solution, you can manually add the information found in the Nutrition Facts labels that you have by using the Custom Entry Tool found in the HELP Tracker. The data that you will enter will be saved in your account for future use.
