Recipe Scaling

Last updated: 17th May 2024

Use the ‘Scale this Recipe’ button at the bottom of the recipe ingredients to calculate the stock required to produce a defined number of portions of a particular recipe:

You can also access this by right clicking a recipe from search results and selecting ‘Scale this Recipe’:

This can be particularly useful in catering and food manufacturing at scale and can effectively reduce waste from stock surplus. Insert how many servings, or the yield that is required for scaling:

On accounts with meal ordering, recipes can be scaled from the live orders dashboard accessed via the Nutritics content explorer:

Right-click on a recipe name on an order docket within the dashboard to open the recipe scaling function:

The number of servings required for that order will be populated automatically, but the number of servings or weight needed can be edited as needed by typing in the quantity boxes:

Go to the order summary on the left and right click an item > Make Recipe to view scaling for the total amount of servings instead:

The scaling sheet can then be downloaded, printed or exported to a shopping list (from the ordering dashboard only).
