Nutrition Data

Steph Sunshine / Fitforia, LLC independently calculates nutrition data for each of our recipes. Nutrition data for standard ingredients (such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, etc.) is sourced from the USDA's Food Data Central. For branded or packaged ingredients (such as almond milk, vegetable broth, etc.), we use nutrition data from the package label. Actual nutrition data may vary if you use a different brand or variety than the one we used to prepare the recipe.

Nutrition data is calculated based on the raw ingredients and does not account for any chemical changes that may take place during cooking or other preparation processes.

Individual nutrients are calculated by adding the sum of the values of that nutrient for each ingredient, then dividing by the number of servings. In some cases, nutrition data may not reflect 100% of the ingredients listed. For example, if a recipe calls for frying in 2 quarts of oil, only a fraction of that oil will be actually consumed, so we will try to estimate that amount, instead of using the entire 2 quarts of oil in our calculations.

We calculate all the nutrients that appear on a standard nutrition label. We also calculate Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, and zinc, because vegan diets may naturally include less of these nutrients. However, since it's not required for these nutrients to be listed on nutrition labels in the US, these nutrients may be underreported in our calculations.

We enter nutrition data for each ingredient manually, and while we try our best to be accurate, we are not responsible for incorrect data caused by entry errors, calculation errors, faulty source data, or any other reason. If you require accurate nutrition data, you should always calculate the data yourself.
