Recipe Analyzers and Nutrition Labels
A variety of calorie counting tools exists on the internet. Some programs are easier than others to use and some programs have larger databases of ingredients. The recipe analyzers listed below were selected because of their large databases of ingredients and ease of use.
Extremely easy to use. Enter the recipe as its written in a cookbook and indicate the number of servings to see the nutritional content of a single serving. The analyzer provides a link to each individual ingredient, and then a nutritional analysis per serving. A nutrition label can be printed.
Provided by the Dietitians of Canada, this tool is new and improved. Use the Recipe Analyzer tool to get a nutrient analysis of your recipes. Site has a BMI Weight Analyzer as well as a Recipe Analyzer.
