I buy 2 different brands of romaine. One is from Costco and when I scan the label in My Fitness Pal, it says the lettuce has 2 g of protein in 6 ounces. The other brand from Whole Foods contains no protein in the same amount.   What’s the definitive answer? Is there protein in romaine that I need to include in my macros? Or does it truly vary from brand to brand?

If one brand has 2g and the other has 0g. I would simply track it as 1g per serving.
