Updates to Recipe Spreadsheet Downloads
We recently made some changes to what shows up on those pages on ReciPal, so we took the opportunity to make sure what you download to a spreadsheet matches that.
The biggest changes are in what's downloaded from the Nutrition Breakdown and the Label pages of any recipe.
The Nutrition Breakdown page on the website shows you both the %DV of each vitamin and mineral and the actual value corresponding to that percentage in parenthesis, but the spreadsheet used to include only the %DV (the thinking was that only the % was on the nutrition label, but that's since changed with the new FDA nutrition labeling rules). Now both the %DV and the actual values are part of the export for vitamins and minerals.
The export of the Label page was showing the unrounded raw values of each nutrient, but now it will show the rounded values (and rounded %DV) that you see on the label, based on whichever label format you've selected. It will also include preparation instructions and the business address. So the spreadsheet will correspond much more closely to the label you see, but it will also include optional information that you might not have toggled, just in case.
The same information will be downloaded whether you're exporting a single recipe or all your recipes.
So please test it out, and let us know if you have any questions. Hopefully this simplifies creating your nutrition labels a bit :)
