Default Apparent micronutrient error in database food

I just bought Wheat Germ (Quaker Oats brand, KRETSCHMER) and on the bottle it says "An Excellent Source of Vitamin E". It lists Vitamin E as 20% under nutrition facts, for 2 tablespoons.

Yet the Wheat Germ (same brand and type) in the database lists Vitamin E as 0% for 2 tablespoons.

I can understand small differences, but based upon this huge difference it appears that Vitamin E was not keyed into the database when this food was created, therefore this needs to be corrected.

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