Happy New Year, Allrecipeeps! It’s me, Elizabeth. I hope you all had a great holiday, and your year is off to a happy, healthy and delicious start!
I am so excited to announce our new Nutrition Search feature! Nutrition Search is now available for Supporting Members to help narrow your search results for recipes using Calorie, Fat, Carbohydrate, Protein, Cholesterol, or Sodium range criteria.
Here’s how to do it:
  • Enter an ingredient or recipe like you always have into the search field. 
  • Click Search.
  • Click on the ‘+’ next to Nutrition Search in order to expand the Nutrition Search feature. 
  • Narrow your overall search results using the vertical slide bars to select ranges based on the nutritional criteria you would like to use.
  • Click Apply to filter your original search results to fit your Nutrition Search criteria.
Your results will include basic nutrition information under the description of the recipes, so you are able to evaluate them prior to clicking through to the recipe page.
Not a Supporting Member? Expand the Nutrition Search menu and click on ‘Try it’ to see an example of how it works using criteria preselected by Allrecipes. Interested in getting Nutrition Search and other great features? Click here to find out more.
I am excited to use Nutrition Search to lower the sodium in my diet! How will you use it?

Hey Elizabeth - Looks like a great new feature. Have most of the recipes been tagged for these filters? Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but not many recipes are coming up when I played around with it. Thanks for all y'all do!

Hi! Love it! Thanks so much!

I am really liking this new feature...great idea!

Thanks for your feedback, everyone! - SD: Yes, the recipes should be properly categorized, so if no results are coming up try widening the search. If you are still having issues, please email me so I can look into it further!

Hi Elizabeth, this is the first I have seen this. I just got on for the first time a few mins ago. I thought it was a glitch. It looks cool so far. Thanks for all the hard work. Hope your holidays were good too! Happy New Year!!

Thank you, Elizabeth! It's awesome! And, in case you did not see my post to your AE post, a big thank you to you and the rest of the AR crew for creating a wonderful, creative, educational site for previously frustrated culinarily challenged (beginner is a very kind overstatement) like me. :D Thanks, Guys!

PS I'll use the Nutrition search for low sodium as well ... I usually leave salt out of recipes (since Hubby automatically reaches for the salt shaker without tasting first), but it's nice to know ...

You have carbs listed, what about including the Glycemic Index? I am trying to eat foods with a low GI.

Is there a way to list fiber content? I'm on WW and use it to measure points.
Jan. 26, 2010 6:56 am
Dear Allrecipes, I would like to make a suggestion. Add a tab to the recipes called "Suggest a Tip" that allows you to post a tip for a recipe without having to rate the recipe. A lot of times I see people rating recipes with 1 star for no other reason than health content -- and then those people add a tip about how to lower the fat/calories/etc. I realize that would be a LOT of coding effort but I think that it would be something that your customer base would really get into, and it would help keep the recipe rating system fair. Thanks for your time :-) P.S. To the lady wondering about fiber content: That's available under the nutrition information, you just have to click on the little "plus" sign (+) and it opens up a scroll-down nutrition bar that includes fiber.

About Me is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at

My favorite family cooking traditions

My cooking triumphs
The millions of recipe choices, the tips and advice, the support and encouragement to try new things or rediscover old favorites make using this site a constant joy.
My cooking tragedies
Who doesn’t have these? Too many to tell really, but from each disaster there’s something to learn and laugh about. Cooking is meant to be an adventure!
