Recipe Nutrient Analysis
Cathy Powers literally “wrote the book” on recipe nutrient analysis.
Her text, “Recipe Nutrient Analysis: Best practices for calculation and chemical analysis” is the standard reference for this process. Her expertise is invaluable for foodservice operations, cookbook authors and food editors. View our analysis projects >>
Recipe Development & Menu Solutions
Developing innovative recipes is a passion that starts with a commitment to healthy food.
Our recipes are on-trend, yet straightforward, and most importantly, they work! We also provide menu solutions for both small and large foodservice operations, including cycle menu development, menu analysis and menus for specific nutritional concerns.

“In my nearly 30-year career in Child Nutrition, few presenters have impressed me as much as Cathy Powers. Her course, Culinary Skills for A+ School Meals, is excellent and her delivery was inspirational to staff. She knows the mindset of the school nutrition professional and clearly demonstrates how new methods can be accomplished. This one course has changed the way we prepare food for students!”

“I’m using Recipe Nutrient Analysis: best practices for chemical and calculated analysis on a daily basis. I’m participating in a massive project for a supermarket chain. The group has a dietitian on staff who also uses the book for referencing tough questions from our group of analysts. I don’t need to ask as many questions because the book is right there on my desk. So much excellent, well-researched information.”
