Q. Why do all of my ingredients list all of the allergens?
A. Genesis errs on the side of caution. We leave the creation of an accurate Allergen Statement up to you. As a default, all ESHA database ingredients begin as containing all default (program provided) allergens. As a result, any new Recipe will likely have its allergens checked because one (or more) of the ingredients within have the allergens checked. Only after you’ve modified the underlying ingredients will the Recipe inherit its allergens solely from the correct set of ingredient allergens.
Genesis will mark a Recipe as containing an allergen if any of the ingredients (ingredient records) contain that allergen. You will want to review the Allergen Statement to mark the appropriate allergens.
As you add your supplier ingredients, you can mark the applicable allergens.
Note: User created allergens are not marked by default
