Adding quantities for nutrients
When adding a new ingredient, the nutrition tab will show a list of 9 nutrients. This includes the 7 nutrients that are mandatory for products in New Zealand and Australia (in situations where a nutrition information panel must be displayed) plus 2 optional nutrients - energy declared as calories and dietary fibre.
Add numbers into the yellow Qty per 100g/ml field and press enter to go down table after entering values into each field.
Adding extra nutrients
If you would like to add optional, extra nutrients to the nutrition table search for the nutrient using the Find nutrients to add field. A list of nutrients that match the search term will display in the table below.
Use the green plus icon to add the extra nutrient into the table.
The nutrient will move into the table and you can then add a Qty per 100g/ml for that nutrient for that ingredient.
When a nutrient is moved up the current nutrients table they will initially be placed as the bottom of the table. This is so they are easy to locate when you want to add a value against them. Once you move off the nutrition tab the last nutrient will move to the correct order in the list of nutrients.
