How to log accurate nutrition data from my food choices?

Stasi14 Posts: 21 Member
Hello I have some trouble to log accurate data for my food choice intake.
For example, my breakfast is 300ml semi-skimmed milk mixed with 2 level scoops of protein powder which it is 37.5g. When I have scanned my powder app says 229 cal not sure if that includes milk or not. My semi-skimmed milk calories is 147 cal for 300ml. If the scanned calories for the protein include milk that calories will be with skimmed milk as the instruction suggest to be used but I prefer to use semi-skimmed milk.
Could somebody tell me how I could log more accurate data regarding the nutritions?
