What does it do & how might it help you?
Our Nutrition Calculator is a FREE online software that provides the overall nutritional value of a single ingredient or a complex recipe. It does this by gathering the required information from either the listed ingredient held on our database, or by your own self-file entries which may have been given to you by your supplier. Not only will you be able to see the overall nutrition information of your recipe, but also a breakdown of how much each ingredient contributes, down to the very specific nutrient in each ingredient. This enables you to easily tweak your recipe and replace or reduce the high contributors. If you register for a free online account, you can save and share your recipe with others.
Where & how we obtain our nutrient content data
The main source of the nutrient content data held on our database is from the most up to date version (7th edition) of McCance and Widdowson’s ‘composition of foods integrated dataset’ (COFID) published by Public Health England (PHE) . The second source is the American Nutrient Information provided by United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). We have re-calculated the data in order to make them compatible with the UK data.
