  • How to View Nutrition Data on ANY Recipe

    Recently we've received numerous requests to provide Nutritional Data on all of the recipes that we share . . . You asked and we listened!

    It's extremely important to me to help those who are willing to help themselves, and when we first started sharing recipes we made a concerted effort to provide this information, However, it quickly became apparent that there is NO Way to provide the correct information for every person, and here's the reason why...

    The ingredients in a recipe can vary greatly by brand name, type (canned vs frozen vs Fresh), Homemade vs store-bought ingredients,
    substitutions, etc.

    Example: Here is the Nutritional Information for a plain old 1/2 cup of Corn

    Calories in 1/2 cup
    Sodium in 1/2 Cup
    Corn Frozen Kernels cut off the cob (Homemade) 66 calories 1 mg Sodium
    Corn Green Giant Brand Niblets Frozen Steamers 90 calories 0mg sodium
    Corn Canned Green Giant brand 100 calories 250mg Sodium
    Corn Canned Essential Everyday 70 calories 10mg Sodium

    Note the extreme differences in just 1/2 cup of a single ingredient
    . Now, multiply that by numerous ingredients and you'll quickly see our dilemma!

    To take it a step further, if you're choosing to purchasing GMO foods (that is foods that are genetically modified) then the nutritional information for that food is going to be completely different than food that is NOT genetically modified.

    To go back to our Corn example, taking the nutrition data just one step further:

    The amount of calcium in GMO Corn is only 14 ppm the amount of calcium in
    a conventionally grown ear of corn is 6130 ppm (that's 437 x more calcium)

    GMO corn has 2 ppm of Magnesium and NON GMO corn has 113ppm. 56 X more.

    GMO corn has 2 ppm of Manganese and NON GMO corn has 14ppm. 7X more.

    Since there is no possible way to know what is in each and every persons pantry, fridge or freezer- where they got their ingredients, for example, are they store brands, a particular brand name, home made, home canned, did they substitute an ingredient for something else because they didn't have it on hand, are they eating organically grown (non GMO) foods, etc.

    Without knowing all of these variables we simply can't provide valid nutrition data for each recipe.
