Q: How will I know when database Ingredients are updated in my ESHA Software?
A: Maintain your Priority Support service. This ensures that you have the most recent ESHA Database available. When you download a program update, the latest ESHA Database is installed. When you view Recipes that use ingredients from the ESHA Database, the data reported is from the most recent version that you have installed.
Update of the ESHA Database is an on-going process. We will continue to add new foods and ingredients, update existing items and provide data that is in line with the 2016 US labeling regulations in as timely a fashion as possible.
If you have added supplier ingredients to your database as new Ingredients, you will need to maintain that information. Communicate with your suppliers regarding availability of updated data.
If you have edited ESHA Database ingredients by use of “Save As” functions, you will also need to maintain and update any ingredients that you have modified. An ESHA Code indicates that an ingredient is part of the ESHA Database. No ESHA Code indicates that the ingredient is a user added or edited item.
Remember to review your Spreadsheet report for all Recipes, Diet Recalls, or Menu Plans as part of your best practices for performing nutrition analyses, and particularly when creating Nutrition Facts panels with Genesis.
