Q: I entered my Recipe/Formula in the software, but I need to edit some of the nutrient values. Can I do that?
A: Yes! In Genesis, with your Recipe open:

  • Click “Edit Recipe”
  • Select the Nutrients tab
  • You will see nutrients, values, and an override column.
  • To change the value of a nutrient, enter a new value in the override column. (Some nutrients allow you to enter a new percent based on the DV.)
  • Click “OK” when finished
  • Be sure to re-save your recipe when done.
