The CRDB Database is maintained by Cronometer's curation team. All foods submitted will be thoroughly reviewed by the team and edited appropriately to ensure complete and accurate information. If you see a food in our database with inaccurate or incomplete information, please Report an issue.
Please only submit a food to our database if it is a common, packaged, store-bought or restaurant food with nutrition information readily available either directly on the food's packaging or on the brand's official website.
Please refrain from submitting homemade foods or whole foods that do not include nutrition facts on the packaging. Examples of foods you should create custom foods for instead:
- Whole Fruits and Vegetables
- Homemade Bread
Steps to Submit a Food
You can submit a food on the mobile version easily by scanning a food that does not exist in our database.
Please include clear photos of both the front of the package (including the brand and name of the product) and the nutrition information listed on the package.
Once you have added your photos, you will be prompted to enter a name, serving size, and nutrition information, as found on your food's packaging or Brand's official website. You are not required to enter any nutrition information, but we do require a name a serving size. Keep in mind, it is in your best interest to add the nutrition data accurately and completely if you wish to use this food in your diary right away. We have hundreds of foods submitted daily so it may take us some time to get to adding your food to the database.
If your food has an American style nutrition facts table, we will do our best to autofill the nutrition facts from the table.
If you do not wish to add the food you have scanned to our database you can instead create a custom food.
