Nutrition

Nutritional data within our solution is managed at product level, enabling automation and calculation at point of sub-recipe and recipe creation

With Natasha’s law now in effect and nutritional legislation going live next Spring, we have further developed our nutrition and allergen functionality to ensure compliance as well as improved automation and accuracy.  

Nutrition is now pre-assigned to each product and at point of recipe creation, Nutrition calculation is automatic, saving you time and ensuring data accuracy.

This means the historic Nutritional functionality under the recipe builder will no longer be available and you will need to build out each products nutrition in order to provide accurate and up to date nutritional values for your recipes. The new functionality will enable a wider dataset, enabling greater accuracy.

There are a number of options on how the product nutrition’s values can be created and managed within your system

  1. Managed and uploaded by Suppliers via the supplier Gateway (Vendor supplied) – which, once accepted in, will automatically update the Products Nutrition and be visible under the Products ‘Nutrition’ tab  
  2. Managed through your console utilising the Composition of foods integrated dataset (CoFID) or the USDA  (Look up tool) via the new Nutrition’s settings Tab; outlined below

By heading to > Settings > Nutrition > Nutritional Data You will be able to enable either;

1. Vendor supplied = ‘On’  – will show the data provided from the supplier via the Supplier Gateway. Receiving Nutritional data through the supplier Gateway will post through to the Product Nutrition’s Tab

If 'Off' - supplier nutritional information won't be posted into your solution against the relevant product 

2. CoFids = ‘On’  - will show the look up tool when editing a product and include this database

3. USDA = ‘On’ – will show the look up tool when editing a product and include this database

NB – you can have all 3 (recommended)  or a combination switched ‘On’.

‘Vendor’ Supplied will always take priority and will overwrite any CoFids or USDA data that may have been entered against the product.

It is recommended to use your suppliers data wherever possible and utilise the CoFids or USDA to fill in any supplier gaps.

 

Additional Tabs under the Nutritional Settings includes:

  1. i) Settings > Nutrition > Nutrition Mapping Tool

 

The Nutrition mapping tool will allow the user to map products/ingredients to items in USDA/COFIDS – replacing the need to build out nutrition every time on each recipe. Once your products nutrition is mapped out, the nutritional information will appear under the Product information and your sub recipe and recipe Nutrition calculations will be automatic

This tool will allow users to add measurement to products where the UOM is each. This is so the nutritional value can be calculated in recipes. A warning will show on product & Recipes where this value needs to be provided.

Products view 

When viewing a product, you have a Nutrition and Allergen tab. If the nutrition is provided by the supplier and the setting Vendor supplied = On it will show against the product.
If there is no data from the supplier or Vendor supplied = Off AND CoFids or USDA are On the user will be able to select and map the product to an item from one of the databases.

The Item needs to be selected and the user needs to click update for the information to show against the product – if this needs to be changed or removed, in edit, there is a ‘Clear Nutrition’ button bottom left.

Allergens can also be updated in Edit mode.
