I see you offer 2 type of instals for your desktop software – Standalone vs Network what is the difference?
- Nutritionist Pro CD Version has 2 different installation options – Standalone or Network
- Nutritionist Pro’s Stand Alone version— you can install each license on one computer. This license will have its own database and will not be connected with other Nutritionist Pro Stand Alone licenses at your office or facility. This is a great option for smaller companies, companies looking for a simple set up, universities setting up computer labs where each database resides on its own machine where there are no shared databases, etc.
- Nutritionist Pro’s Network version— you can install Nutritionist Pro on as many computers as you would like, as long as they are all connected to one central database. The number of simultaneous users you can have will depend on the number of licenses you have purchased. Your Nutritionist Pro database will be a shared database and anyone who has access to the program will be able to view the data, make changes or add to it. This is a great option for companies where more than 1 person will be involved with using the software and they want to share their data.
- If you would like to migrate and move to the network version, you have the option to do that. Just contact our team at email@example.com and we can assist you with that.

Nutrition Facts Food Labels
Does the government allow Nutritionist Pro to be used for label and recipe creation?
- Nutritionist Pro is able to create labels for a few regions – USA, Canada, UK/EU, China/HK. For these labels, the government allows the food and food service industry to use an ingredient database and software to calculate recipe data and food labels.
- Nutritionist Pro uses USDA, CNF, EU/UK databases and other government sources of data as well as data from the manufacturer. In addition, our users are able to add ingredients not found in the software from their ingredients’ food package.
- This type of analysis is allowed by the government of these regions. The various agencies request that you keep good records of your analysis and we recommend that when you are using the foods found in our database you should always look for the source of the food data which is shown next to the food name when you are searching and selecting. So, if you are making a Canada Label use the data from Canada etc. The agencies don’t provide a list of software vendors, but they allow ingredient databases to be used and leave it up to you to decide which ones you want to use.
- So if you are not sure if your region allows a nutrient and ingredient database to be used then we recommend you ask your particular region contact and if they do allow it then you can use this type of tool. You can also send them the link to our website for further information as well.
What is the difference between Laboratory VS Database analysis?
- Nutritionist Pro uses a Database for nutrient analysis, we capture data from around the world from different sources and our software can be used to calculate nutrient breakdown of recipes, ingredients, food labels, diets, menus and more.
- Laboratory VS Database Nutrient Analysis: Each process handles nutrient analysis differently and the government agencies do not enforce one over the other. As long as you keep good records and follow good protocols you are allowed to use either or both of these options.
- Reliability of Data: From Literature and Research the industry has said that over the long run the database values for ingredients tend to be more accurate since it relies on averages of data points.
- Both process can give different results — Remember the database relies on average nutritional content of ingredients vs lab analyzes the sample the one time it was made. Samples can vary every time you send it to a Lab since there can be variations in the sample. For database creation check the recipe to make sure the recipe has no mistakes and all the ingredients have the right amount added etc.
- Extensive data source to make recipe/formula creation easier and faster: Our team works with many different food sources around the world. We have ingredient data from USA, Canada, Asia, Europe, Latin/Central America and more. We also have easy steps for users to add their own custom ingredients to the software that can be used in their recipes and labels.
I am not sure how to start I need my Food Labels fast!
No worries Nutritionist Pro can help. We compile ingredient data from many regions and we have labels for many regions. What you need to get started is this list.

- Have your ingredients written out with weight or common household portions. For example chicken 3 pounds, tomatoes 15 kilograms, 1 teaspoon of salt etc
- Now you are ready to build your recipe in Nutritionist Pro. Go to our recipe section and start to enter your recipe data and build your recipe.
- Once you are done you can look at the nutrient profile and see how your recipe looks.
