Many database entries have an incorrect or ridiculous value for sodium content.
This is a vitally important issue for people who must watch their sodium intake.
The source of the problem is that when users enter the value, they may not realise that food labels often give salt content instead of sodium and/or grams instead of milligrams. Naive entry of the number leads to incorrect values in the database, often zero.
It is easy to address the problem: just put a units selector beside the number input box. I suggest "mg Sodium / g Sodium / mg Salt / g Salt". It is then trivial to do the conversion to mg sodium for the database.
The problem has existed for several years and, despite repeated complaints, nothing has been done about it. Why not?
Please fix this bug. And don't say it is not a problem in the USA because of USDA labelling. It is a problem everywhere.
