Where a recipe or sub recipe is for use as an ingredient in other recipes, you can specify that it will be declared as a reconstituted ingredient on nutrition labels.
Optionally, you can also assign the recipe or sub recipe to an ingredient group, which means it can be grouped in the ingredient statements on labels.
To declare a recipe or sub recipe as a reconstituted ingredient
- Open the recipe or sub recipe.
- On the General tab, click Label declaration
- In the dropdown list, select Reconstituted ingredient.
- In the Declaration name box, enter the name you wish to use for this recipe or sub recipe when it is used as an ingredient.
- Optional: To assign this ingredient to an Ingredient Group, either type a new ingredient group name or select an existing group from the dropdown. See Notes.
- In the Statement (>5%) box, enter the statement for when this recipe or sub recipe is more than 5% of the final recipe.
- From the Statement (<5%) setting dropdown, select the statement for when recipe or sub recipe is less than 5% of the final recipe.
- In the Rate box, enter the ratio at which this recipe or sub recipe is reconstituted. For example, to dilute 1 to dilute 1 kg of the recipe with 4 kg of water, in the Rate box, enter 4.
- Click Save.
Notes: About ingredient groups
- Ingredient groups are categories you define – such as fruit, nuts, milk products – to group ingredients (whether a recipe, sub recipe or raw material) when they appear in the ingredient statement of a nutrition label. For example, if the raw materials cashews and almonds have been assigned to the group nuts, then they can appear in labels as nuts (cashews, almonds).
- When you create a new ingredient group by typing it into a resource, it is added to the dropdown list of ingredient groups, so you can then select it for other resources.
- To use an ingredient group in a label for a final recipe, set the properties for that recipe's label: Open the recipe, click the Labelling tab, then select the ingredient group.
