We are trusted by over a thousand food professionals because of the outstanding accuracy our software offers. We are the industry standard software for nutrition calculation, and our customers even include Trading Standards Departments.
Laboratory analysis is unfortunately prone to human error and anomalous results, while you can always rely on NutriCalc calculations to be accurate and consistent, as long as the data you enter is accurate.
NutriCalc uses data files that have been modified where necessary to comply with EU regulations for labelling (front of pack and back of pack), ingredient lists, QUIDs and allergen declarations.
Leading food companies worldwide count on NutriCalc to supply them with the accurate, compliant data they need.
NutriCalc is easy and user-friendly to navigate, even if you have not used it before. You will also find plenty of support, both built in to the software and available via our online videos and knowledge base.
We also offer on site training for those of all experience levels, and this is always worthwhile to ensure that you and your team members have a good knowledge of nutrition calculation, and additionally to make the most of your NutriCalc subscription. Find out more on our Consultancy & Training page.
When you choose NutriCalc you have access to these comprehensive data sources:
McCance and Widdowson (7th edition) 2019

Our expert team at NutriCalc have recalculated values in the USA’s official government ingredients file where necessary, to ensure they are compatible with UK data when used in our nutrition software.

Still using Laboratory Analysis?
NutriCalc offers you unlimited use of the software for all of your products, so it is a cost-effective way to make as many recipe or supplier changes as you like with instant results.
A full lab analysis of the main seven nutrients costs at least £100, so NutriCalc pays for itself in no time. Nutrition calculation software is especially useful at the new product development (NPD) stage, or in product pitches where retail customers require nutrition information at the concept or presentation stage.
The speed of NutriCalc is also a huge benefit, compared to the time it takes to make, pack and send product samples off for analysis. While your competitors are waiting for lab results, you can be impressing customers and increasing profits.
There are a small number of processes for which calculation may not give accurate results, such as fermentation, which is unpredictable, or cooking methods like deep frying or battering, where where not everything stays in, or is not fully removed, .
Analysis may also be advisable if you are missing important information about ingredients in the product, or if you wish to make health claims for micronutrients.
Our expert team will be able to advise you with full transparency.
We will only advise calculation if we are confident of accuracy and we will tell you if we believe your product is more suitable for analysis. We may also be able to advise on how to use a combination of analysis and calculation to keep costs down now and in future – so it is well worth giving us a call!

For example, a Pay As You Go monthly subscription would suit you if you have a small product range or limited menu that changes infrequently.
