About nutrition facts

Find this table in the Bran and Date Muffins recipe.

The nutrition facts of many recipes are now available on our site. They have been analyzed by a registered dietitian member of the Ordre professionnel des diététistes du Québec.

What is a serving?

Nutrition facts are given for 1 serving, unless otherwise indicated at the top of the table. For example, if the recipe's output is 4 servings, nutritional values cover 1out of the 4 servings. And if the recipe's output varies (for example, from 4 to 6 servings), the nutrition facts table will indicate the serving reference.

About salt

When salt is listed as an ingredient, but in no specific quantity, a small pinch of salt is added to the analysis. In other words, the value of the sodium displayed, where applicable, takes very little added salt into account.

To give you an idea, 5 ml (1 tsp.) of salt is equivalent to 2,400 mg of sodium.
