JSI Recipe Tool 101

If you need nutritional information for snack and food items made at your school, we have the tool for you! The JSI Recipe Analysis Tool allows users to create recipes from an ingredient database and analyzes the recipes to determine if they meet the Massachusetts School Nutrition Standards for Competitive Foods and Beverages in Public Schools. Once a recipe is saved, users are able to edit, share, export into a .doc file, and print recipes including the nutrition facts panel, ingredient list, and allergens. The JSI Recipe Analysis Tool is a user-friendly, reliable recipe analysis program, created by registered dietitians at The John Stalker Institute.

Most of the ingredients in the database are from the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, Release 25 (released in October 2012). Other ingredients are from the Child Nutrition Database Release 16 (released in April 2012).
