Tip – Keyboard shortcuts for setting allergens

To quickly set the status for an allergen, in the Override column, click its value field and type y (for Yes), n (for No) or m (for Maybe).

Your input focus then automatically moves to the next allergen in the list, ready for you to type a letter. 


  • If you do not set the status for all allergens, Foodworks displays warnings in the warnings/errors menu at the top of the screen. Screen_Shot_2023-02-28_at_11.26.12_am.png
  • When this raw material is used as an ingredient in a recipe or sub recipe, its allergen declarations flow through to the recipe or sub recipe. If the value is 'Yes', this allergen is shown on the label as a Contains statement. If the value is 'Maybe', this allergen is shown on the label as a May Contain statement.
