Nutrition Calculator

Nutritional Calculator

In 2014 Caffe Macs decided to undertake the impossible, calculate nutritional information on a daily changing menu.

To put that into perspective, the USDA takes 1-2 months to calculate the nutritional fact data on one new food item. I was hired to develop a program to do a similar thing, without using a team of scientists and a government funded laboratory.

I designed and developed the app from the ground up in FileMaker. My team had done something never before seen in the nutrition field, and I created the tool to do it. By no means was it perfect, but at the end of the day I was proud to put my name behind it.

Three years later, before my departure from Apple, the system had over 50 users, with 6 nutritional analysts. They were calculating nutritional facts on every food item that came out of Caffé Macs.
