How Nutritional Analysis Software Improves Your Restaurant Business


Nutritional Analysis Benefits

As new legislations arise around the calorie labelling of food items in restaurants, restaurant patrons are more interested in the nutritional value of what’s in their dish. There is a lot of media hype about how bad fast food and restaurant food can be for your health. However, this isn’t always the case and a new challenge for restaurants is separating themselves from the other “bad” restaurants.

One solution is to offer nutritional analysis of your dishes to your customers. Become transparent about what’s in your food and win over the health conscious consumer. This doesn’t mean you have to add calorie counts for every dish on the menu, but at minimum offer some healthier choices by adding the nutritional information to some existing dishes, or creating new healthier ones.

Previously, the only way to get a nutritional analysis done was to hire a nutritionist and send your dish to a lab. This is quite expensive, costing on average $800 per dish. Identifying a need in the industry for affordable nutrition analysis, online applications, such as MenuSano, now exist. With MenuSano, restaurants can take out the middleman and input their recipes and dishes online by themselves to get a complete nutritional analysis of their dishes. Restaurant owners, managers, and chefs can experiment with recipes in MenuSano to make a dish healthier by editing or substituting ingredients to increase or decrease nutritional elements such as calories, fats, sodium, carbohydrates, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, or iron.
