Declare a raw material as a simple ingredient


You can declare a raw material on labels as a simple ingredient. A simple ingredient is a basic ingredient which itself has only one ingredient, for example, potato. Fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, fish and oils fall into this category.

Optionally, you can also assign the raw material to an ingredient group, which means it can be grouped in the ingredient statements on labels. See Notes.

To declare a raw material as a simple ingredient

  1. Open the raw material.
  2. Click the General tab, then click Label Declaration.
  3. In the dropdown list, select Simple Ingredient.(Simple ingredient is enabled by default).
  4. In the Declaration Name box, type the name that you want to appear on nutrition labels.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
