This webinar will demonstrate to attendees the steps to be taken to ensure that a nutrient analysis program can generate accurate nutrient values from a given recipe. The webinar will begin with an analysis of recipe/formulation. The instructor will then guide participants through the process of selecting nutrient data for ingredients, highlighting the pitfalls to avoid along the way. The course will help you formulate a plan in achieving your goal - nutrient data that is ready to be formatted into a Nutrition Facts table or equivalent presentation.

Why Should You Attend:

Governments and consumers demand nutrient data on a wide range of food products. These demands are increasing to include restaurant foods and other food nutrients. Many companies turn to calculating nutrient values as a cost-effective alternative to laboratory analysis. However, you cannot rely exclusively on software for the program: there are too many places where errors can be introduced.

This webinar will emphasize the steps to be considered while calculating nutrient values for your food products. Here are some of the questions this course will address:

  • How much detail and precision do you need in your recipe before you start?
  • How will processing impact the nutrients in the product?
  • Are there any food products where it is not appropriate to calculate nutrients?
  • Can you use the ingredient nutrient data in the database that came with the software?
  • Should you use nutrient values from the Nutrition Facts table on the ingredient package?
  • Is it alright to use nutrient values from the internet?
  • How do you check your results to confirm that the calculations were executed correctly and that the results are reasonable?

The guidance offered in the webinar will be of remarkable assistance and compatible with any program your organization may use.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Introduction and scope. Nutrient analysis versus programs that generate Nutrition Facts tables. Calculated nutrient values versus laboratory analysis. Overview of presentation.
  • Brief overview of commonly used computer programs used to calculate nutrient values.
  • Assessing recipe prior to calculation.
  • Recipes and sub-recipes.
  • Impact of processing (nutrient gains and losses).
  • Sources of nutrient data for ingredients: government databases, data from ingredient suppliers, internet.
  • Evaluating quality and completeness of nutrient data for ingredients.
  • Checking results.

Who Will Benefit:

This webinar will provide valuable assistance to:

  • Personnel in food manufacturing companies that need a cost-effective way to obtain nutrient data.
  • R&D, regulatory affairs or QA/QC personnel
  • Supervisors who want to ensure that their staff or external consultants are doing a reasonable job calculating nutrients
  • Restaurants that want to provide nutrient data to their customers
  • Cook book authors
  • Recipe developers for print or online marketing campaigns
  • Dietitians needing recipe or meal nutrient data for clients or menus
