NEW in FoodWorks 18 - EXPANDED NUTRIENT DATA - FoodWorks 18 has been updated to contain the USDA Standard Reference version 28 and the Canadian Nutrient File 2010.  The NHANES Food and Nutrition Database for Dietary Studies (FNDDS) is also included in the FoodWorks database.  FoodWorks users can choose to include or exclude any of six source databases when searching for foods to include in an analysis.  The addition of new data brings the total available food references to more than 41,000.  Entries from each database are tagged with a prefix identifying the source database making food selection easier.

NEW in FoodWorks 18 - NUTRITION FACTS LABEL ENHANCMENTS – FoodWorks now can generate both the old and new label formats.  You can turn off the food name that appears above the label on printouts so that you can print your label to a narrow-format label printer without overrun.  You can also opt to print a list of ingredients in descending order of weight.  The ingredient list will appear immediately below your label.

– To support the Nutrition Facts labels, FoodWorks now contains the old and new Daily Values dietary standards.  You can select whichever standard you wish to use.  The Nutrition Facts labels automatically use the applicable DV.

– This feature “remembers” foods you have chosen before.  If you search for a food and your search results include a food you have chosen before, that food will be displayed in a special list, making it easy to find foods you use often.  You can delete foods from the list, and you can erase the list and start over at any time.


NUTRIENT PREVIEW WHEN SELECTING FOODS – This feature shows you a preview of the nutrient amounts found in a food you are selecting.  The preview is sensitive to the portion you choose, so the nutrient values vary to match the portion.  This allows you to make decisions about portion sizes based on nutrient content – a valuable tool to menu and recipe analysts.


“SHOW ME” WALK-THROUGH TUTORIALS – FoodWorks has always been known for its user-friendliness. And now, users can learn to do important tasks more easily than ever by using the new “ShowMe” walk-throughs. ShowMe is part of the Help menu. Just pick a topic from the ShowMe sub-menu and get step-by-step instructions for performing a task. In addition, all of the standard help topics are available to provide all the information you need.

In addition to these changes, many internal efficiencies have been added to FoodWorks version 18. Changes include updates to take advantage of current technology capabilities as well as more powerful input evaluation.  Network usage requires unlimited licensing.
