Recipe and nutrient analysis
Nutrient analysis and labeling services are available for restaurants, food manufacturers, cookbook writers, caterers and personal chefs among others.
Recipe and nutrient analysis is more than simply entering ingredients into a software application and hitting enter; it requires knowledge of the cooking, preparation and handling processes. We use ESHA’s nutrition analysis software, which provides a robust ingredient database, the capability to create FDA-approved nutrition facts panels and more.
Care is taken to conduct the most accurate analysis possible. A detailed assessment of your menu of ingredients, content and preparation is completed after discussions with the staff, manufacturers and on-site visits as needed. Changes during processing and cooking are also accounted for during the analysis.
Food and nutrition labeling
Results of your nutrient analysis can be used on menu boards, online or in-store education materials and to create Nutrition Facts panels for packaged foods or your company’s nutrition facts book. We can also interpret the results for use on menu labeling or FDA compliant health and nutrient claims.
We can also help you navigate the relevant parts of the Health Care Reform Act which requires certain restaurant chains and packaged food providers to provide nutrition information.[/left]
Let us help you:
- Comply with menu labeling legislation
- Identify, develop and promote healthful options for health-conscious customers
- Highlight and identify menu options for those with special diets or allergies
- Stay abreast of food and health trends[/right]

Cookbook recipe analysis
Whether you’re creating a new cookbook or need nutrition analysis for your website or media story, we can help. Including nutrition information for recipes is a great way to differentiate yourself from other writers and attract health-conscious readers. It’s an essential component to any health-focused publication to gain the trust of the home cook or the health professional that may refer clients your way.
