Default Custom food error?

I created a vitamin custom food which is fine but the vitamin had 100% vitamin C but it shows on my rda chart as 80% whats up with that?

I'm not sure if this is the only reason, but the "100%" of RDA on vitamin labels is based upon a certain calorie intake (i.e. a 2,000 calorie diet). The FitDay software, if based upon a different calorie intake would obviously show a different percentage.

Regards,
Michael
