Functionality has been developed that will allow users to exclude certain recipe ingredients from intolerance calculations. This is similar to Advanced Nutrition which allows users to exclude certain recipe ingredients from nutrition calculation.
Release Date: 16-Jan-2014
Reason for the Change
All StarChef customers.
In this example an ingredient ‘Yellow Colouring’ is added to a recipe ‘Banana Mix For Banoffee Crumble’. Yellow Colouring is not likely to be used however; it is included in the recipe to show the potential cost it would add to the recipe. Therefore it should not be included in the nutritional value calculation nor should its Intolerance data be included in the recipe.
Fig 1 - Ingredient Intolerance Data
- Fig 1 above shows that Yellow Colouring contains artificial colours specifically, E110.
Fig 2 - Recipe Intolerance Data
- Fig 2 shows the Nutrition tab of Banana Mix For Banoffee Crumble recipe and that it has correctly inherited the intolerance data from the Yellow Colouring ingredient.
- It also contains other intolerance data from other ingredients within the recipe.
