Recipe Forensics

MenuAnalyser was created in 2011 to provide professional services to the Catering & Hospitality sector.

We provide comprehensive nutritional analysis of recipes and menus including allergen warning information. This is particularly important since the European legislation known as the Food Information for Consumers Regulation (EU/FIR1169/2011) came into force in December 2014.   Since that date, all catering establishments serving what is termed 'loose food' are required by law to provide warnings to their customers if any dishes served contain one or more of the fourteen major food allergens covered by the legislation.

More information about EU/FIR1169/2011 here.

In addition to nutritional and allergen analysis, MenuAnalyser also provides:

  • Recipe Costing
  • Portion Control
  • Food Waste Management
  • Supplier Order Lists
  • Nutritional Training For Chefs
  • Educational Presentations
  • Press Commentary

Most of our clients make use of our consultancy service, which means that they don't need to employ an in-house nutritionist in order to comply with the ever-changing catering industry legislation or provide the high standard of nutritional analysis of dishes served that customers are now demanding.

As well as independent restaurant and hotel sector, our clients also include:

  • Corporate Caterers
  • Ferry Operators
  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Airport Lounges
  • Care Homes

We also provide access to our web-based analysis software on a subscription basis.
