To declare the presence of allergens and set warning or advisory statements for a document:
- In the open document, click the Nutrients & Components or Overrides tab.
- On the left, click the category that you wish to work with - Warning Statements, Advisory Statements, or Allergens.
- For Warning Statements and Advisory Statements, click in the Override column and select either Yes or No.
- Click the down arrow to move to the next and continue to set the status for all the warning and advisory statements.
- For Allergens, click in the Override column and select one of Yes, No, or Maybe. (Yes generates a Contains statement, Maybe generates a May contain statement).
- Click the down arrow to move to the next allergen and continue to set the allergen status for all the allergens.
- Optionally, type a note in the Notes column.
- If you do not set the status for all the allergens and warning and advisory statements shown, then FoodWorks displays warnings at the bottom of the document pane.
- If you do not see warning statements, advisory statements or the allergens you require on the Nutrients & Components or Overrides tab then these need to be enabled for this database - see How do I enable nutrients, components for a database?.
- Recipes inherit the allergen declarations set in their ingredients. You can override any allergen values set in the ingredients of a recipe by setting the allergen declarations on the Overrides tab in the recipe itself.
- To control how allergens are displayed in the labels for this database, see How do I set advanced label properties for a label?
- A document tab can be hidden or have a different name depending on the document template used. For example, the Nutrients & Components tab might be called Nutrients, or the Notes tab might be called Remarks. For more information on document templates, see What is a document template?
