Online Nutritional Analysis Service Enhanced for ChefTec in New Release


BOULDER, Colo. - February 8, 2011 -- The Online Nutritional Analysis Service (NAS) from Culinary Software Services has been enhanced to include the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference (SR23) release. The SR23 release contains data on over 7,500 food items and up to 146 food components which means ChefTec's Online Nutritional Analysis Service is now more comprehensive than ever.

The ChefTec Online Nutritional Analysis Service gives immediate access to nutrition data. This intuitive interface allows for downloading of nutrient data right into ChefTec. It has also been enhanced to allow end-users to download allergen information into their desktop ChefTec. NAS gives a quick and accurate analysis of recipes for fat, allergens, calories, nutrients, and now micronutrients. When using the Nutritional Analysis Service, allergens will be automatically added to ChefTec data so this information will be displayed on the Nutrition Facts label.


"An imperative part of any business that serves food is to keep customers safe and we at CSS need to adapt to the ever changing USDA regulations," said Bev Daniels, General Manager at Culinary Software Services. "Anyone who uses ChefTec's Online Nutritional Analysis Service will benefit from the enhancements and updates we've implemented with the SR23 release. This has become especially important because so many states and cities are mandating that nutritional information be available for menu items."
