How is nutritional information calculated?

We've mapped our complete ingredient database to corresponding ingredients in the USDA National Nutrient Database. If we couldn't find a perfect match, we found a product from a trusted brand and used the nutrition facts from their label. We calculate the nutrient amounts for each recipe based on weight and then divide for the number of servings.

Our nutritional information updates with the recipes! If you add a recipe to your personal library and make an edit (like remove an ingredient, or change the number of servings), when you click save the nutritional information will automatically update. 

Based on available information, there are certain calculations that needed to be estimated, leaving room for error. We've made every effort to provide accurate information for all recipes, but if you see anything that looks off please feel free to drop us a line at

Note: Nutritional data is a premium feature and will only be accessible if you have chosen to upgrade to a Gatheredtable Meal Planning Subscription. See plans options.
