Nutritics 4.3 Whats New?

Making your life easier by making Nutritics smarter.
20th Feb 2017

We have just launched Nutritics 4.3! 

With this update, our ethos was to make your life easier by making Nutritics smarter. We've built several new tools to help food industry deal with the onslaught of complex legislation surrounding food production and labelling. We've also upgraded the Nutritics engine to seamlessly accept quantities in any metric or imperial unit and added lots of little tweaks to make foods easier to find and the software easier to use.

There are lots of new powerful features and tools to go through so lets get started!

New Advanced Search Tool

Search for any foods that meet your specific criteria. This new search tool is invaluable for meeting nutrient targets when designing meal plans for your clients !

 

For example:

Find vegetables with greater than 6mg of Vitamin C

• QA Publishing Panel-  New Panel for food manufacturers with checklists and warnings to ensure you have thought of everything before publishing your recipe!

What's your favourite unit?

Every country seems to have their own way of describing weight, quantity and height. Even if your country officially uses metric units for road signs etc, you may find you only know your height in feet or your weight in pounds. It can be tricky to always have to enter things in a specific unit so we've tried to teach Nutritics them all. You can now enter quantities in any unit. Just type 2lb 8oz or 2.2 gallons or 1.1 litre or 5ft 4 or or any other unit you can think of!

Other Updates

As always, we've have made lots of design & functionality updates to make the software interface even easier to use.

  • We now support International Food Codes throughout the software which makes it very easy to reference or look up a specific food.
  • Collapse sections in the recipe creator tool to make operation easier 
  • Conversion calculator for weight & height in the client profile is now automatic 
  • Right click on any tab for quick access to the last 5 open items
  • Rename columns on diet logs instead of meal 1 meal 2 etc
  • Create custom fields for columns in diet logs (Research Edition Only)
  • Greatly increased speed & accuracy during food searches, report generation and general use.
  • Tonnes of tweaks and bug fixes.
