    Question Possible to calculate the mono/poly fats if you know the saturated?

    Shop Now
    Just wondering - here in the UK, many food labels only carry info for total fat and sat fat (as, obviously, CW dictates that's all we should be concerning ourselves with) so this doesn't make for accurate FD logging (and O3/O6 calculation).

    Is there anywhere that has a tool for doing this...?

    Cheers, folks!

    We don't have the specifics on our labels over here either. http://nutritiondata.self.com/ is a very useful website that does have all the nutritional breakdown, though their database is somewhat limited and you have to ignore tons of CW to get to the good stuff.

    Honey, I'm in the UK, Nutrition Data is an AMERICAN site, I can hardly see that it'll carry info for Sainsbury's own label products!
