What Is A Recipe Builder?

A good recipe builder provides a way to select ingredients with nutrition calculated automatically for each ingredient along with the macro distribution per serving.

It should also allow for adding health labels, custom labels, custom foods and cooking directions. Our recipe builder makes creating recipes easy, efficient, and fun.

Creating the perfect recipe for your clients is very important but also time-consuming. Using our custom recipes feature, not only you will save time, but also have more fun experimenting with different ingredient combinations.


As you add ingredients, the nutrition information is automatically calculated. A 100g measurement is used initially but other measurements such as cups, tablespoon, teaspoon, pinch and others are available too.

Add ingredients feature

Foodzilla integrates with popular food compositions databases from several countries such as New Zealand (FSANZ), Australia (FSANZ, NUTTAB), the United Kingdom (CoFID), and the United States (USDA). The nutrition information is provided by the Ministry of Health from each respective country. Foodzilla only provides food nutrition data from trusted authorities.

Cooking Directions and Labels

We highly recommend adding cooking steps when creating custom recipes and make it as clear and simple as possible.

Add cooking instructions and labels feature

If you would like to link to your recipes blog or a website, you can do so in the "Cooking steps website" field. This is an optional field and is not required to create a custom recipe.

You can also add health and diet labels from our existing selection of labels. Should you need to add your own custom labels, you can do so from the custom labels section.

Available Recipes

You can easily search our database for all kinds of recipes, cuisines and nutrition requirements. For example, you can easily find gluten-free and dairy-free recipes with 300-600 calories per serving.
