why 4% milkfat cottage cheese isn't in the database? I just entered it as a custom food. But, it seemed weird they could put potato chips with olestra in there and cottage cheese with 4% milkfat isn't in there.

That is strange! I'm pretty sure My P.L.A.N. gets its data from the USDA, and 4% cottage cheese is on the USDA web site.

Just did a quick check on the USDA site and only found 1% and 2%.

Wa'il, I'm pretty sure that the first item on the list when you search for cottage cheese on the USDA site is the 4% type. Standard cottage cheese is 4%, and since that item doesn't have any modifiers, i.e. 1% or 2% or nonfat, then it probably is plain old 4% cottage cheese. I have no way of proving that, though.

We do have the "regular" cottage cheese as well. Here's the USDA search tool:

http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/

And it gives the same results as our search tool, and would only differ if they update with new items or change entries.

I knew that the USDA is the same as P.L.A.N. I did check it. I also couldn't find "regular" Miracle Whip as opposed to light and no fat. I know you guys can't change what's on the USDA, I just thought you might know why it's not there. It just seemed odd.

I don't think I could find regular mayo either as I made a custom for that too.

There is a cottage that's regular, but it's creamed not curd, and the calories and fat aren't equal since you can fit more creamed in a measurement.

Is there any way to determine the minerals and such? I guess I could just modify one of theirs and hope it's close?


And thank you for looking. Maybe I'll email them (USDA) and ask...
