Easy Nutrition Facts Label

Easily add FDA-style nutrition labels to pages and posts.

This plugin creates a 'nutrition-label' custom post type which can be assigned to any page or post.

Use the shortcode 'nutrition-label'to generate a FDA-style nutrition label.

Developers can add do_shortcode('[nutrition-label]') to their templates so their clients can automatically assign labels to posts and pages.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nutrition_facts_label for more information on nutrition labels.

Reference daily intake values come from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reference_Daily_Intake

This plugin is forked from the wp-nutrition-label plugin found at http://romkey.com/code/wp-nutrition-label

  • Initial release

What units does the label use?

  • Grams: totalfat, satfat, transfat, carbohydrates, fiber, sugars, protein
  • Milligrams (mg): cholesterol and sodium
  • Unitless: servings and calories (units are implicit for calories)
  • You should include the unit in the serving size attribute (ie: "4 oz")

What about **Calories from Fat**?

The Calories from Fat number is computed from the totalfat attribute.

What about vitamins?

Thinking about it.

How do I style the nutrition label?

You can control the width with the "width" attribute. The width attribute uses ems as its unit. It is styled to scale but it's likely that the "Nutrition Label" text won't scale well as the default font is Helvetica, which isn't fixed-width.

Each label as an id attribute of wp-nutrition-label-{ID} which allows you to change the label as you see fit.

How about calculating the nutrition values based on a recipe?

This is really hard to do. To do it at all reliably requires human intervention to match ingredients names against their entries in a nutrition database. That's a level of difficulty I don't wan to try to tackle with this plugin. You may find the USDA's free online nutrition database useful for looking up nutrition information:
