Nutrition analysis by MenuSano allows you to inform your customers about the nutritional content of your food. The Ontario Healthy Menu Choices Act now stipulates that many foodservice providers must include nutrition data. There is also compelling research to prove that foodservice providers that display nutrition information outperform their competitors that don’t.
MenuSano software is designed with foodservice providers in mind in terms of compliance, as well as allowing them to grow and manage their businesses properly.
Since MenuSano's original development, it has become trusted by a range of restaurants, bakeries, hospitals, and public service departments. It has also picked up several awards from industry and regulatory bodies. When you provide nutrition information, you also provide customers with choices and a sense of accountability. In doing so, you improve customer satisfaction. Customers tend to trust and rely on foodservice providers that prepare consistent meals with accurate nutrition data. It promotes transparency and healthy eating.
MenuSano's new features include nutrition labels with dietary statements (organic, vegan, keto, etc.), allergens, an ingredients list (unilingual and bilingual format), and cannabis edibles nutrition information.

Easy-to-Use Nutrition Analysis Software
The software is so easy to use, that you’ll be able to calculate the nutritional content of your products within minutes and have labels ready to print out. All you need to do is type in the ingredient. We have added machine learning (AI) to our ingredients search so that the common search items will appear towards the top of your search results. This feature will help you find your ingredients faster. You then pick the correct choice from the extensive library provided by MenuSano. For example, if you were to type in mayonnaise, you could choose a variety from a list including low-fat or regular options. Alternatively, you can also add a custom ingredient. After this addition, you can input the correct quantity from a list ranging from a dash or a teaspoon to an ounce or a whole typical ingredient (in the case of fruits and vegetables).
Type in quantity, such as “3 tomatoes" and the ingredient is added. When all the ingredients in the recipe are inputted, your nutrition information is complete. It’s stored in your account, and you can easily export and print the label or save it to use as a component of a meal. For example, your tomato sauce might be a component for your Spaghetti Pomodoro, which also comprises of pasta and a garlic bread portion.
Accurate Nutrition Analysis Information
MenuSano is an online method of calculating the nutrition content of food known as theoretical analysis. Instead of performing tests on your recipes in a laboratory, the theoretical analysis uses an already compiled set of data from previously tested ingredients. The MenuSano library of ingredients contains 250,000 ingredients from USDA, Health Canada, and Public Health England. This means that whatever recipe you create, there’s virtually every possible ingredient in the MenuSano database already stored. In the unlikely event that the ingredient is not stored in the vast library, you can then go ahead and add the ingredient to your recipe using the easy-to-use feature.
Theoretical analysis relies on already compiled nutritional information about ingredients, so it’s incredibly accurate. It’s considered more accurate than laboratory analysis which tests dishes that have been prepared there and then. Because naturally occurring foods vary in their nutritional makeup throughout the year, this means that your meals will change all year round when they are prepared with fruits and vegetables. The theoretical analysis uses mean data compiled from testing natural foods from season to season, to provide greater accuracy throughout the whole year.
MenuSano allows your chefs to experiment to create great-tasting products with nutritional profiles that your customers are looking for. When you first start using the MenuSano software, you may be surprised about how healthy your dishes are. You may also find that the levels of sodium or fat are higher than you anticipated.
Once you have the data in hand, you can start experimenting with levels of fat, sugar, and salt. Great tasting food with an attractive and healthy nutrition profile rarely arises through serendipity. With some time, research and experimentation, you’ll be able to create delicious dishes that health-conscious customers won’t be able to resist.
MenuSano gives you the ability to taste test and compare the nutrition profiles of each dish in real-time. It also gives you an exciting flair to expand your range and cater to all kinds of customers. This includes consumers that follow low sodium and low-fat diets or ones that have food intolerances and allergies.
