8th Jun 2016

We have just updated all accounts to the latest version of Nutritics. As always we have added many customer recommended features and suggestions to improve usability, function and security. Have a look to see whats new!

New Features

  • New Digital Menu for foodservice users (pictured above). This can be used on TVs, tablets or on your customers smartphones. Check out our user guide for more information.
  • We've added a powerful new streamlined process for removal of inedible waste from ingredients and specific-gravity adjustments for each food in the database to accurately convert inputted liquid volumes to grams. To our knowledge, now no other software in the world can calculate recipe nutrition as accurately as nutritics.
  • Save your report layouts and customisations with the layout preferences. Use our pre-built templates for simplified, standard or detailed layouts.
  • New collaborator layout for Organisations, Users, Read-only viewers and Digital Menus makes sharing easier.

New database, languages and units
