What is a Recipe?

Introduction to the management of recipe database

Published on 08/31/2021Cladie Olivier

A recipe database is the document that gathers the knowledge related to a recipe (composition, production steps, nutritional information...). It is used both to organize the production of the recipe and to control its profitability.

The creation of your recipe databases is just as crucial a step as that of your ingredients. It allows you to indicate the proportions of the products (ingredients, sub-recipes) that make up your recipe as well as the different stages of the latter. You can choose to produce in servings or final weight. Either way, the amounts of ingredients are adjusted automatically. They allow you to manage your margins and have visibility on the profitability of your recipes.
