Default Thank you for your B-5 suggestion

I had to get around this issue by finding a food high in B5, shiitake mushroom, and editing it to be a calorie free food and removing it's other nutrients. I suppose this works OK, but I would really like it if FitDay would make a space on the nutrition label to enter in a %RDA for Pantothenic acid.

This is a great idea! I just started taking B-complex and would also like to add Pantothenic Acid as a custom food. I hope that FitDay will address this, as this is the only Vitamin/Mineral left off the custom food label.

I really like your idea about the shiitake mushroom modification, and will use this for my B5 addition.
