What is MenuSano?
Learn more about our award-winning nutrition and recipe costing calculator
MenuSano is an online nutrition analysis and recipe costing software that will accurately estimate the number of calories and nutritional information in food items and their cost. It is an affordable online product that has been designed for flexibility and ease of use. MenuSano's development started over 5 years ago, and it has been tested with restaurants, public health departments and hospitals.
How It Works
MenuSano accurately calculates the nutritional value of recipes and dishes. Enter your ingredients into recipes and create a nutrition facts label that can be downloaded and printed. You can use this information on your menus or apply the label to a product. Additionally, you can combine recipes that make up a dish and generate a nutrition facts label for each dish on your menu.
MenuSano uses government-regulated nutritional databases including the Canadian Nutrient File, USDA, and Public Health England's McCance and Widdowson’s "The Composition of Foods." Combined, these databases include an extensive number of food items. Any ingredients not found in these databases can be added as a custom ingredient by using the nutrition label on the packaging.
I use it for my bakery and cupcake shop and find it extremely accurate and easy to use! This brings value to my products and knowledge to my clients! :) Love it!
MenuSano allows us to calculate our recipes with accuracy and instantly check potential variations in the recipe. For instance, if we notice one item in development might be slightly higher in calories, salt, or other factors than we would like, we can make the necessary changes. Since we’re often making food and ingredients from scratch, we can specify custom ingredients in MenuSano. This has allowed us to provide more accurate information in our food items.”
MenuSano makes it easy to adjust recipes. Seeing all of the nutritional information on paper is helpful, and it has inspired us to create some new menu items. We love the menu we have now, but we thought that it would be nice to introduce some new items that might be beneficial at this time, both health-wise and trend-wise,” says Grace. "The one thing we were surprised to find out is how much sodium our recipes contain. We thought we used minimal salt but Menusano helped us discover that some of our recipes contained a surprising amount, which made us change some of our recipes.
Great tool! The MenuSano team has helped us analyze some of our healthiest items. We liked how easy it is to modify a recipe by easily changing quantity sizes and ingredients. In turn, the software produced the nutrition facts that we were able to use right away.
Many thanks for creating MenuSano. We are really happy with the results over the last couple of months. With your guidance, we have created a Healthy Menu and inserted it with our regular menu. People seem to care a lot about healthy eating. They are also pleasantly surprised by our healthy menu!
Food analysis labs are expensive and are often out of reach for smaller restaurants. This is a viable alternative that can help save time and money for restaurant owners.
MenuSano is great because it allows us to sell our Sundried Tomato Fiber Spread. It’s the best alternative for nutritional analysis for a beautiful restaurant like mine.
Kabab Grill offers healthy Lebanese food. Our customers come into our store and ask for nutrition facts all the time. We are proud to say that our Shawarma sandwiches have only 356 calories with 3 grams of fat and 32 grams of protein. Thanks to MenuSano, we were able to easily calculate this information which is a huge sales point for us! We printed it on our takeout brochures and it helps our healthy-eating customers make the right choice of where to eat when grabbing a quick lunch.
My wife and I started College Falafel because we strongly believe in healthy eating. We have been voted as having the best Shawarma and Falafel in the city. With MenuSano, we have the facts to prove that it is very healthy! Thanks to MenuSano for complimenting our food.
Today’s consumer is very concerned with the quality of the food that they eat. Nutrition value is now a major player when choosing a restaurant - low sodium, less sugar, just about the right amount of protein, less saturated fat, and the list goes on. MenuSano easily brings this information straight to the consumer. Our guests welcomed the breakdown of our recipes and we feel that this will be a great marketing tool since our menu is very healthy.
