Users simply get type or copy and paste the foods or recipes they want analyzed and the Nutrition Wizard instantly produces full nutrient analysis with detail for macronutrients such as amount for trans fats, fiber and added sugar, as well as the content of all vitamins and minerals. In addition, the Nutrition Wizard automatically calculates the applicability or diet warning for the analyzed foods and meals for all known allergens and most popular lifestyle diets, such as vegan, keto or low-sodium. Lastly, the Nutrition Wizard also calculates the percentage of recommended daily intake that the analyzed meal has for each macro and micronutrient.

This recipe-within-recipe functionality is particularly sought after by restaurants and catering businesses that have a lot of preps and proprietary recipes they use to build more sophisticated meals.
