How Do You Calculate the Nutrition Facts of Your Recipes?

The nutrition facts of our recipes generated by our Nutrition API which consists primarily of FoodData Central Data.

  • The nutrition facts displayed on a recipe is always per serving
  • The percent daily values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet
  • Calorie totals are calculated by adding up the calories of the individual foods in a recipe, not by 4-4-9 formula
  • Calories of individuals foods are provided by FoodData Central which uses Atwater Factors

Disclaimer: We do our best to make sure the nutrition facts we provide is as accurate as possible, but these figures should still be considered estimates. Varying factors such as product types and the way ingredients are processed will change the nutrition facts in any given recipe.
