So, as I read more and more here (and learn more and more), I'm becoming frustrated that things I want to track (in particular PUFAs and Omega 3s and 6s) aren't on nutritional labels.
The Omegas just aren't on there that I can see, and even resources like skipthepie.org seem to be more focused on packaged foods than real foods.
As for the PUFAs, the labels have:
Total Fat and a percentage (say, 10%) As subheadings, there are saturated fats (6%) and transfats (0%) (with percentages). Sometimes I'll see a line for monounsaturated.
So... a) why are PUFAs not on there? b) are PUFAs the difference? In my example 4%?
I've been using MyFitnessPal to track, and it allows for tracking PUFAs, so it's really only an issue when they don't have a particular food and I have to create it in their database. (It doesn't track the Omega 3/6, though, which is irritating.)
thanks in advance!
