Nutrition Facts

Many recipes lack nutritional information users may be unwilling to calculate themselves. To address this issue, Recipya can calculate the nutrition facts for you automatically when adding a recipe.

To enable this feature, access your settings via your avatar, click the Recipes tab on the left, and check the Calculate nutrition facts setting’s checkbox.

This setting is initially disabled because adding a recipe will take up to a few additional seconds. This happens because querying the nutritional database for every ingredient takes time. The processing is done in the background to ensure your interaction with the application is uninterrupted.

Recipya does its best at calculating the nutritional information based on a recipe’s ingredients. However, please understand that the calculation is more indicative than absolute truth. The information is based on the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service’s FoodData Central, which is an integrated data system that provides expanded nutrient profile data. Please open an issue on GitHub if you ever notice a recipe with nutritional information that seems vastly inaccurate.

The calculation can only be done with ingredients written in english because the database is in english only.
