How to add ingredients
Ingredients are goods that you use to prepare dishes and drinks. For example, pastry flour for cupcakes or spearmint for lemonade.
To add an ingredient:
- Go to Products → Ingredients in the management console.
- Click Add.
- Type the name, choose a category from the list and select a unit.
- Specify a loss percentage in case of cold processing, boiling, frying, stewing or baking.
- Click Save.
💡 When you add dishes and preparations with weight ingredients, put net desired weight and cooking method. Poster will calculate gross weight based on the loss percentage and consumption of the ingredient.
☝️ If you update the percent of cooking losses of the ingredient, its gross weight in dishes and preparations will also change.
Combine ingredients into preparations to use them in different dishes.
