How to customise the allergens tracked in your system?

This article explains how allergen settings can be managed to add or remove allergens from your account

Applies to:
This guide is for system administrators to manage the allergens tracked on your account.

Allergens settings can be managed in Settings > Menu Costing.

Then click on the Allergens tab:

Here you can add new allergens by selecting 'Add new'. 

You can Edit existing allergen names to change how they are referred to in the system by choosing Actions > Edit.

To remove an Allergen listed select Actions > Merge into. This will then give you the option to merge this allergen into another. This may be useful if you've accidentally created a duplicate allergen profile.

Merging means that wherever this allergen occurs in products and recipes it will be replaced with the allergen you merge into.
