Automated Nutrition Calculation Added To Create By Mediavine
Automated nutrition calculation is the WordPress plugin’s most anticipated functionality for recipe card users
BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 17, 2018 — Create by Mediavine, a WordPress plugin solution for content creators, introduced its newest feature this week: automated nutrition calculation for recipe cards. As with the Create plugin itself and all of the features, this functionality is free for users.
Since its launch in October, Create by Mediavine has continued to improve upon the user interface of many popular recipe cards to introduce several never-before-seen features. The plugin has also sought to make available several features that have previously only been available through paid or “pro-version” plugins, such as automated nutrition calculation.
Create’s automated nutrition calculation functionality is powered by Nutritionix, which uses natural language processing to pull data based on a recipe’s ingredient list and automatically calculate a full panel of nutritional facts.
When a Create user edits an existing or new recipe card, they will be able to calculate the full nutrition panel with Nutritionix after inputting the number of servings. The user will then be asked to approve the figures before they are added to the recipe card.
“Google has been marking calories per serving as a recommended metric for some time now, but we know that many users don’t have the time or ability to calculate this themselves. By introducing automated nutrition calculation to Create, we are offering publishers a free way to meet Google’s recommendations,” said Eric Hochberger, Mediavine CEO and Co-Founder. “Create was built with SEO in mind, so giving users the tools to make their recipes fully Google Search optimized is of utmost importance to us.”
“We are incredibly excited to be a part of this project,” said Daniel Zadoff, Managing Director at Nutritionix. “As the world’s largest verified nutrition database, we are impressed with how Create by Mediavine integrates our data in a sleek and free plugin for content creators to analyze and provide accurate nutrition information to their users in an intuitive way, instantly.”
Automated nutrition calculation is just one of a slate of upcoming features for Create. Other future features include:
- Related recipes and projects feature
- Recipe and project index
- Support for lists of all creation types
- Advanced ingredient and materials interface
- And more.
