When you create a recipe, by default, its nutrient analyses are calculated from the ingredient information and yield information provided. However, when necessary you can override these calculated analyses. You can:

  • Enter the nutrient values for the recipe from an external source.
  • Base the nutrient analysis for the recipe on another item (by choosing a similar item from the data sources or from your own custom foods and recipes in the workspace).
  • Set the nutrient values to zero or unknown.

You can also use a hybrid approach where you base the analysis for the recipe on another item, or set the values to zero or unknown, but also enter some nutrient values from another source.

To enter nutrient values for a recipe

  1. Open the recipe.
  2. On the Overrides tab, in the Value column, enter the values for each nutrient per 100g (or,  optionally, enter another weight in the Value field for Weight (g)). 
  3. Optional: Make notes about a nutrient in the Note column.
  4. Click Save.

To base the analysis for a recipe on another item

  1. Open the recipe.
  2. On the Overrides tab, in the Base analysis on dropdown list, select Other item
  3. Search for and select a similar item. The values are imported from the selected item and shown in the Result column.
  4. Optional: For any nutrient for which you prefer to use data from another source, type the preferred value in the Value column.
  5. Optional: Make notes about a nutrient in the Note column.
  6. Click Save.
