Some things to consider when selecting the right partner.
There are many recipe analysis software’s on the market that can analyze the nutrition content of your recipe. The software should be easy to use and intuitive. It is also important to consider the time that your team will need to invest initially in working with a nutrition software and data entry for all your existing foods and recipes served at your establishment. It might be a good alternative to consider a package contract with both software and services. Companies that have both a software and service package have dietitians on staff that will work with the key personal at your food service facility and create nutrient breakdown of your entire menu. For example they can work with your chef and break the chicken enchilada recipe into the total amount of calories, fat, Trans fat sodium etc and provide that to your team in a user friendly report. In addition once all the recipes are analyzed a custom database can be created and packaged with a nutrition analysis software. This package option may be better suited for your particular facility since the initial time cost is saved and the software package custom created for you will ease any recipe modification or addition in the future.
A team of dietitian and nutrition professionals have the expertise and may also provide feedback and help create healthier options for your facility. Nowadays restaurants are also providing this type of nutrition data on their website so clean and professional looking results will be vital for you to consider when selecting a vendor. If your facility is looking to stay ahead of the game then it is important to find a vendor that can work with your particular needs in recipe analysis and find a nutrition analysis package that will be a great value for the investment.
