We wanted to give special attention to Genesis R&D SQL, our software program that produces the nutrient information we use to develop the nutrition story of your recipes. Genesis has a database of more than 37,000 foods, including USDA data. We add ingredients to the database on a regular basis and can add food items that are specific to your recipes.
Using the ingredient database, we analyze your recipes to quantify the nutrients in your food products. We can identify the number of calories, and how many of those calories are derived from fats, proteins and carbohydrates. You’ll also learn the sugar, fiber, cholesterol and sodium content – we list them all in an Excel spreadsheet or in a Nutrition Facts label – or both, whatever your needs or preferences are. You get the full story on your foods, and a base of information for creating new recipes in the future.
What are some other Genesis benefits? It’s efficient, flexible, and costs one-tenth of what a laboratory would charge to do nutrient analysis. We can break down a food product by ingredient or component, so that you know exactly where the nutrients are coming from. This saves you time and money if you modify a recipe or create something new. Best of all, On The Menu maintains an archive of your recipes forever, so you’ve got a permanent record.
We’ve got nearly a decade of experience using Genesis, and we’ve assembled an impressive array of information that we can cross-reference, update, and supplement. It’s the smartest database we know, and we love to introduce our clients to it!
