Thanks for posting and sorry for any trouble with searching the main food database.

Once you choose a meal to which you wish to add your item (Breakfast, Lunch, etc), there should be a search bar at the top of the app. Type the food item for which you are looking into the search bar, and then make sure to hit either the “Search” button or magnifying glass button directly on your keyboard (where you would normally see the “Return” button).

This should then prompt the search of our food database, pull up a list of search results from our main food database. If this does not yield any search results, please do let us know, as we would be happy to further triage this with you.

Warm Regards,
MyFitnessPal Staff
