How is your nutrition information calculated?
We analyze our menu items either through calculated analysis (a sophisticated software program) or by chemical analysis (sending multiple samples to be tested in a lab). There are many factors that go into deciding which method to use, including the type of food, preparation, and information from our suppliers. Both types of analyses are based on the standardized recipes we use in our restaurants every day. As our chefs make changes to a recipe, we make the changes to our analysis. We know we can never make the exact same dish twice, but our approach to nutrition analysis helps ensure the nutrition we report is representative of what will be served in the restaurant.
Are your nutrition results accurate?
Yes! Providing nutrition information that helps you make your dining decision is something we take very seriously. While we are confident in the nutrition information we disclose, the numbers will vary due to the inherent variability in food and food preparation. Even with a dedicated team, standardized recipes and best-in-class nutrition analysis, we can’t promise you that the nutrient content of each meal will be exact every time - but we can promise you that we’ve done everything we can to get them as accurate as possible.
