Different Pointsplus values for the same thing??

Recommended Posts

I've noticed some items will have 2 different points plus values even though they are the same. Like this morning, Dannon Light & Fit Nonfat vanilla yogurt 8oz...when I calculate the points on the calculator it says 3pts for when I search for it it says 2pts for the exact same thing and amount. I've noticed this on several other things as well.

 

So am I to assume I use the nutritional label on the food if available instead on the database?

 

Thanks :)

When you have the ni from the label, that is what you should go by. The reasons the points plus can be different is:

 

  • the item in the WWers database is a generic
  • the company has changed their formula (and ni) and the WWers database hasn't been updated yet
