Default Hi. New here. Need help searching the database

Hi all. I am having some difficulty using the database to find what I thought would be very basic food items. For instance, I had a 1/2 cup of canned black beans, and started a search to input the data. I couldn't find it. The search returned black bean soup, dried black beans, black turtle soup, Cuban style black beans, etc etc, but not just plain old canned black beans.

If I do find something remotely close, the nutrition profile is so far off from the label I can't believe it's what I am looking for.

This has happened with a lot of other very basic foods, and I ended up having to create a 'custom food' using the label. This is very time-consuming.

These things are so basic I am sure I am not searching properly. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
