Not really. It's built into the foods database on the site. It's just "hidden".

So a food high in pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5), like eggs, will display the amount when looking at the RDA percent reports but it doesn't show up in the Custom Food box as an entry (Food Label).

When looking at an egg from the site database, you won't see pantothenic acid listed under the Food Label, but you will under the "Total Nutrition" and the "%-RDA/AI Graph" tabs for the egg.

Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
