Find And Replace Ingredients

Last updated: 23rd April 2024

With real time click and ‘replace all’ functionality, you can swap brands across recipes and menus quickly and easily ensuring confidence that the correct information, including ingredient lists with full allergen profile is available for your customers.

You can also update ingredient quantities across all recipes in batch.

To replace ingredients: 

If the substitute product is not already in the Nutritics database, add it by following our guide on adding ingredients to Nutritics (making sure the allergen information matches the substitute product). 

  1. Open a recipe where an ingredient needs to be replaced
  2. Scroll to the recipe ingredients and right click on the ingredient that needs to be replaced 
  3. Click ‘Replace’:

  • You can now replace the ingredient in question (1)
  • Tick the recipes where the ingredient should be replaced or ‘Select All’ (2) 
  • Search for the substitute ingredient in the search bar (3) 
  • Tick the substitute ingredient (4) and click ‘Review’ (5) 

  • Clicking review will show any changes to the recipe after replacing the food. For example, any additional allergens, or changes in calorie content. ‘Contains’ allergens will show as a larger icon and ‘May Contain’ allergens will be smaller:

  • If you would like to change the quantities of the ingredient, input this in the respective boxes
  • Choose ‘Compare‘ in the top right corner to open our comparison tool and see a full list of changes between both products
  • When you’re ready, click ‘Replace‘ to continue with the swap
  • If the item is used in any menus we’ll replace the item there also so all information is updated.
