Calculating nutritional values of your own recipes

Postby SarahC » Thu Apr 12, 2007 11:57 am

I just discovered the Food Standards website. You can enter in all the ingredients of your favourite recipes, and it will tell you all the nutritional information of it. It gives you stuff like calories, protein, fat, carbs and sodium. I'm looking forward to using this site more, because how often do you see recipes with no nutrition information, or you just make up your own creations, and you kind of guess at the calories, or go through and use calorie king and add it all up yourself.... this is so much easier :D

Oh Sarah you are a legend!!! Calorie King is great, but as you said you still have to work it all out for yourself...this is an added bonus + a big time saver....thankyou.

How awesome is this sight. Thanks heaps for posting it and sharing with us all.

I too used to sit and work out kilojoule of all the recipe which is such a time waster. This will be a big help.

Cheers for that Sarah :D .
