    Seems like you can -- I just tried searching for Fage. It's not a specific filter, but you can put brand in the search box.

    It would be great until you discover that people have entered way too many products with otherwise accurate info but they put the Brand in the other field.
    Some will find the like owner of brand and use that despite the fact it's not on the main packaging.

    Pepsi - Frito-Lay Fritos Chili Cheese corn chips

    No - it shouldn't be that confusing but there ya go.
    At least I've noticed that when people try to be that accurate with the name they'll go and screw up one of the nutrient numbers badly - like they lost their ability to do it correctly after dealing with that name.

    Seems that it used to be easier to find restaurant items too, if you typed in the restaurant name, but now it doesn't narrow the field at all.
