The Sprwt Ingredient System gives you the power to create detailed sub-recipes and reports so you know exactly what to purchase, cook, and package. Additionally, allowing your customers can track their nutrition with each meal.
To start go to the Admin Dashboard > Kitchen > Ingredients & Sub-Recipes and click add new to create a new ingredient or click on an ingredient you wish to edit.
You start by entering the name of the ingredient and the category. You can create meal ingredient categories by going to Kitchen Settings > Meal Category. With Sprwt, you can track your food costs by entering the cost of an ingredient per unit. In the next section, enter the name of the vendor you purchase this ingredient from and the cost. This cost should be calculated with the Base Weight and Base Unit. For example 1 (bw) OZ (bu) is .30c (cost). Note: We recommend all core/raw ingredients Base Weight to be 1.
Additionally, in Sprwt you can use our system to calculate your Trim Percentage. The Trim percentage tells our system what you need to purchase and cook in order to hit an appropriate yield for a recipe. For example, if you have a recipe that yields 4oz of chicken breast and you know your trim percentage is 25%, our system will tell you that you need to purchase/cook 5oz to hit a 4oz yield.
You can then enter the cooking instructions that would pertain to this ingredient. This would show up on the Cooking Report.
The next step is tagging your ingredient with allergens and dislikes. You can create allergen and dislike tabs under Kitchen Settings > Allergens and Kitchen Settings > Dislikes.
Note: All sub-recipes need to be retagged regardless if ingredients have tags already.
If you are on the Base Plan or Pro Plan you can use the Sprwt system to track macro nutritional information. We recommend entering macros your core/raw ingredients (i.e. Chicken Breast, Broccoli, etc...) that way as you build sub-recipes and meal recipes the system will automatically calculate macros. This way you are working bottom > top and save time in the long-term and utilize the Sprwt system more efficiently.
