Question Adding Brand-Name Foods


Perhaps I'm just not seeing it, but am I going to need to create custom food every time I have a specific brand? For example, if I search "bagel" a lot of options come up, but if I try and add "Sara Lee" everything goes away. I'm rather particular about getting the nutrition facts right and it's slightly peeving to have to make them all myself.
Is there a way to search by brand I'm missing? Or perhaps a barcode scan I can use?

Thanks for any help!

If you use a specific brand a lot, it's a good idea to enter it as a custom food. Sometimes, just looking at the Nutrition Information on the package shows you that it has the same information as a standard bagel, for example.

Bagels are an example of a food that is all over the place when it comes to size and calories. I've seen frozen bagels at Walmart and fresh baked bagels in the supermarket (no nutrition information) and they were not even close to being the same size. Tread carefully!
