Interactive Recipe


The "Interactive" sheet is the main sheet.  The "Free Recipe Template" sheet is a formula template that you may freely enter any recipe modification that you wish. 

In the "Interactive" sheet, in the first page, you first have to choose the required flavor. 

In the first page, choose also the other options besides the required flavor:

  • Present Values As 
    You have to choose whether the values in the recipe will be as % of the total dry mix or as % of the final ready wet soup/bouillon/sauce.  If you choose % of the dry mix, in the very bottom of the recipe you will get the recommended powder:water proportion.
  • Target Product 
    You have to choose whether your final product is going to be a soup, stock/bouillon, sauce or flavor base only (only the ingredients contributing to the flavor characteristics without anything else).
  • Pasta content 
    In applications that are supposed to contain pasta, you can "play" with the pasta content.  For applications that are not supposed to contain pasta (like sauces), it's irrelevant.
  • Saltiness 
    You may make the product more or less salty. 
  • Sweetness 
    You may make the product more or less sweet.
  • Richness
    If an extremely rich product is required, choose "Rich".  If the costing is too high, choose "Economic".
  • Thickness 
    You may adjust the thickness of the product.
In the second page (i.e., in the calculated recipe itself), put in cell G40 the batch size in the trial that you would like to do and in column H. 

You may also enter the costing of each ingredient, yielding in cell I40 the final ingredient cost per Kg powder or per Kg liquid (depends whether you chose to make the calculation as % of powder or as % of the total ready liquid).
