Creating New Groups in the ESHA Database

Using Groups is an efficient method for organizing data and records in Genesis R&D Foods and the Food Processor, for making searches easier, and for a variety of other purposes. Check out our blog post — Using Groups for Organization, Exporting, and Access Control — for an in-depth look at how to use Groups.

The program database comes pre-populated with a list of common food groups and characteristics you can associate with your records (Recipes, Ingredients, etc.). In addition, you can add your own Groups to the program database.

Here’s how:

  1. On the Database ribbon, click Modify.
    Nutrition Database Software
  2. Select the Groups tab.groups
  3. Click
  4. Select the Group radio button (or to create a folder containing a set of Groups, create the folder first).
  5. Type in the name.
  6. Click OK.

The user-added Groups will appear in blue to differentiate them from the included Groups. You will now be able to attach any Ingredients or Recipes to this Group and use the Groups for organization and searching.
