    Because the database is largely user added, and for a variety of reasons (info not on packet, they're not interested in that data) members often don't add values for vitamins and minerals. I note the green checked entries for both red and green grapes show vitamin C values.

    MFP is largely useless for tracking vitamin and micronutrient intake, as the vast majority of entries simply don't have that data completed.

    If you choose USDA entries and check first to make sure they include all the possible nutrients, you can get a pretty good idea what your intakes is. Just search "USDA ____" whenever you can.
