    Where do you get the nutrition facts for your recipe hubs from?

    Is there any website that would give you accurate nutrition information for the recipe hubs that you publish on Hub Pages?

    I haven't done this on HubPages yet, but I've done it for other purposes. You need the nutritional facts for each ingredient, and a spreadsheet. (Or you can add it up on paper.) Nutritional facts for ingredients, if they are packaged, are on the package. For ingredients, many sites will give you the information.

    nutritiondata.self.com gives the info, and even has a nutrition calculator, so you can build your recipe and do it all there.

    another site is the official US government site: http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/list

    Be careful about multiplying or dividing portion sizes from ingredients, then doing that again to match your recipe.

    Good luck!

      I just found another source that is very easy to use, and seems to be very complete: www.CalorieKing.com .

    For the single recipe article I've done, I used recipes from women who actually use them and from other websites which seemed valid enough since I aslo tested them first. I believe it's always wise to make certain that a recipe works by cross referencing it or testing it yourself.

      As for the website you've asked about try this: http://nutritiondata.self.com/
      I think you'll find it's very informative.
