This article shows how to set up nutritional values and dietary information for a product to declare calories in a recipe.
To set up and get a nutrition value for recipes (menu items) a nutrition number needs to be linked to each product which will pull the nutrition data set loaded in the application. To link the nutritional values for a product please follow the below step-by-step guide for each product (also see Figs 1-4).
- Go to Property > Products > select the required product and use the Details button
A new tab will open, displaying the Product details.
