Nutrition Calculator FAQ

How do you calculate the nutritional information of a recipe?

Our nutrition and calorie calculator gathers nutritional data from several different sources, including the USDA and original product labels, among others. Each ingredient is assigned a nutritional value based on the data collected from these sources. To calculate the nutritional information of a recipe, ingredient quantities are converted into grams and then multiplied by these predefined nutritional values (per 100 grams).

How do you get the nutritional value of homemade food?

By breaking down the ingredients of each recipe, we’re able to calculate key nutritional data for each ingredient, including calories, carbs, protein, fat, sodium, and sugar. Our nutrition calculator then aggregates that data to calculate an overall health score for each ingredient. The overall recipe health score is calculated by combining these individual ingredient scores and the nutrient data for the recipe. The higher the health score, the healthier the recipe.

How can I calculate the nutritional value of multiple servings?

Whisk automatically calculates the nutritional value of a single serving based on the total listed servings of a recipe. If you want to adjust the size of a single serving, you will need to log in and change the total servings of a recipe.

How can I improve the nutritional value of a recipe?

Because our nutrition calculator calculates the health score of each ingredient, you can see how each of the ingredients in your recipe affect its overall health score. By reducing or omitting energy dense ingredients or using healthier substitutes (for instance, olive oil instead of butter or sour cream instead of mayonnaise), you can improve the overall nutritional value of your recipe.
