Nutritionals are back

By rolando December 12, 2012

We haven’t been hiding nutritionals from you, we promise. We just didn’t have a clean way of reporting them. I spent a bunch of time updating the Recipe Template 2013 (that’s the one Ayr posted about) to include nutritional information. I fine-tuned the spreadsheet to make it easy for anyone to input information, and fixed a couple of glitches (the batch cells weren’t corresponding to nutritional yields correctly, the spreadsheet wasn’t coming out beautifully on iPods).

What this means for us is that we can now easily see calories, fat, fiber, protein, and sodium, right alongside our recipes. What this means for you is that you’ll finally get to know what exactly you’re getting when you eat that Clover breakfast sandwich. Linking the nutritionals to our recipe docs is going to be pretty powerful moving forward, because whenever we adjust a recipe, it will be reflected instantly on these docs.

This website will be the hub for nutritionals, and I’ll be posting them as I calculate them throughout the winter. In the meantime, if you’re a home cook or professional chef, and want to compute the nutritionals of your own recipes, click the top link above, copy, and use our document as needed. If you have any questions, leave a comment and we will get back to you.
