For example, I am trying to analyze a recipe and when I entered Muir Glen fire roasted tomatoes it does not recognize them even though they are in your database. I tried even just entering tomatoes, diced and it still was having a problem.
A food's ID number appears at the end of the url. The url for Muir Glen Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes is http://caloriecount.about.com/calories-muir-glen-fire-roasted-diced-i104093. Whenever you create a new recipe and the tool does not recognize a food, place the food ID number in square brackets and enter it as an ingredient. For instance, your tomatoes are . On the ingredient list, enter the amount (e.g. 8 ounces)  to recognize the food. Read our FAQs about entering and analyzing recipes at the question mark sign.
