Ok so you have it done. A few questions for you:
2.) By whom?
4.) and what’s changed?
Why do I ask? Because the answer to these questions may have some impact on the accuracy of you data and nutrition labels.
We recently added this information to the MenuCalc website and thought it might make for a good blog spot as well:
If you already have nutrition information for your menu you may still consider having your recipes re-analyzed if you:
- Have nutrition values generated from a database done in 2006 or prior – In 2006 there was a major revision in the USDA database.
- Used any of the following companies:
- EZProclaimer© Software
- FIAS (Food Intake Analysis System) Millennium 1.0
* From research, we believe these companies have gone out of business, therefore there will be no nutrition analysis support if errors are found
- Have reformulated your recipes.
- Have changed your ingredient supplier.
- Your consultant used out-of-date or defective software. It’s a good idea to check with them to see what software they used.
In a time when TV stations are taking food samples from restaurants to have them lab analyzed, to then blab their erroneous results to the public, accuracy is a priority, and we need to follow best practices (such as: using an approved nutrition analysis company or asking consultants if they’re using the latest CD), to eliminate as much room for error as possible.
Thought for food.
