Nutrition Analysis and Recipe Costing Software for the Meal Kit Industry
Fast, Easy & Cost-Effective Nutrition Labels for Meal Kit Delivery Services
MenuSano nutritional analysis software is an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution for meal kit businesses. Analyze your recipes and attain nutrition fact labels online with MenuSano.
Traditional methods of obtaining nutrition analysis involve sending food items to a lab. This method costs on average $1,000 per item and takes several weeks for results to arrive. MenuSano brings the lab results straight to you! Simply log into your account, enter ingredients into a recipe, and generate your result.
While the meal kit industry is disrupting the food supply chain, MenuSano is disrupting the nutrition analysis industry. Just think about it, we are a partnership that is meant to be.
Create Nutrition Labels For Recipes and Dishes
MenuSano is the ideal nutrition analysis tool for meal kit delivery services. There are two ways to analyze nutrition in MenuSano:
1. Enter ingredients into a recipe and generate a nutrition facts label
Add ingredients by searching our database of over 250,000 food items. Enter the quantity for each ingredient in the recipe. Add custom ingredients for any item not found in our database.
2. Combine recipes into a dish and generate a nutrition facts label for each dish
Select several recipes to combine in a dish. This may be a sauce, a side, a protein - anything you want. MenuSano will calculate the nutrition for one dish.
Compliant Nutrition Labels
MenuSano’s trusted databases include the Canadian Nutrient File (CNF), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and Public Health England's government-regulated nutrition sources. Combined, our databases include an extensive number of items. Ingredients that are not included in our database can be added as custom ingredients.
Customized Nutrition for Specialty Recipes
MenuSano can handle any type of special diet, such as ketogenic, vegetarian, gluten-free, and more. MenuSano allows for dietary customization in the following ways:
- Ability to add custom specialty ingredients
- Add allergy and dietary statements to nutrition labels
- Include an ingredients list with the label
- Experiment with various ingredients to make a recipe healthier
Dietary labels are important. They show consumers whether an ingredient or meal is vegan, gluten-free, allergen-free, etc. This is vital information to consumers who are following specific diets.
MenuSano allows users to experiment with their recipes. This is important in creating dishes catered to specialty diets. For example, clients following a standard ketogenic diet are concerned with the amount of fat (75%), protein (20%), and carbs (5%) in a meal. By swapping out ingredients, meeting these nutritional goals has never been so easy.
With 250,000 ingredients to choose from, recipe experimentation is effortless with MenuSano. It is also possible to create your own custom ingredients if needed.
With MenuSano's Recipe Costing module, effectively manage costs to ensure a maximized profit margin for each recipe in your meal kit. Add ingredient costs from your suppliers and auto calculate the recipe cost.
