Nutritional Value / Calorie Calculation
Calculation of calories (recipe analysis) is a detailed exercise where precision is essential, and we take great care in all steps to ensure accuracy.
Calories are just one dimension. We provide information beyond calories such as fat, sugar, cholesterol, protein, vitamins, and others.
This allows for even better-educated menu decisions.
Menu Optimization / Consulting
We leverage our nutritional & industry knowledge to provide practical and impactful suggestions on how to make menus healthier & more balanced.
We start off by understanding your restaurant’s philosophy, target audience and current menu successes. Then we review the menu on ingredient-level and identify opportunities for a healthier or allergen-free menu without compromising taste.
We conduct workshops for staff, so they make balanced decisions on menu design and can better guide their clientele towards healthy eating.
We have standard workshops, but can also tailor them to your specific needs. Workshops could focus for example on balanced diets, food allergies, weight loss, etc.
Our workshops are practical, scientific and interactive.
What are the costs of a nutrition fact calculation & menu optimization?
We fully customize our approach to your menu to provide you with a tailored quotation based on your needs. Costs for nutrition fact calculations generally run from AED 100-200 per recipe, menu optimization and consulting starts at AED 500 per hour depending on the complexity of the menu.
How long does nutrition fact calculation take?
Very much depends on your menus and recipes. Generally, larger menus and more complex recipes take more time. After an initial screening of the recipes, we provide you with an estimation of the required time.
What information must I provide to Beyond Nutrition?
During the initial phase, you provide us with a copy of all the recipes you want to analyze or optimize. The more specific the information is, the better! If we have questions, we get back to you before we start our work. This is a team effort – for best result, your chef, who created the menu/recipes, or a person in the restaurant kitchen, who is familiar with all the ingredients and recipes, should be involved to answer questions.
How will I receive my nutrition fact calculation results?
As soon as we completed the nutrition fact calculation, we will email you all the reports.
