Hi folks. I cannot find certain food items. Example macadamia nuts. Comes up as no results. Any help would be great. Thanks

    Sorry I meant Brazil nuts

    I just found both. Don't bother typing nuts and don't put a space after brazil.

    I’ve just tried both those and found a boatload of entries for both searches. Might you have been offline at the time in which case it may have been only searching your local cache rather than the entire online database. Happened to me before now.

    Since the "verified" green check marks in the MFP database are used for both user-created entries and admin-created entries that MFP pulled from the USDA database, to find admin entries for whole foods, I get the syntax from the USDA database and paste that into MFP.

    Note: any MFP entry that includes "USDA" was user entered.

    Ex:
    Nuts, brazilnuts, dried, unblanched
    Nuts, macadamia nuts, dry roasted, with salt added
