If it's in the column that gives the quantity of X-substance found within the food, it may simply indicate that there is either none in that food or that the quantity is so low that they do not see a need to record it on the label.

This symbol is called a tilde. It means that the nutrient was not measured in the food.

By not measuring it does not mean that it does not have it in it. It could have an amount so low it does not register.

But why even add it if it does not make a difference?
