Overview of Genesis R&D 11.0 and New User Interface

By in ,

We have designed a ribbon interface into our Genesis R&D Food Formulation & Nutrition Analysis software to allow for quicker and more intuitive access to all of the programs robust features. To learn more about the program updates, check out our Genesis R&D 11.0 Overview Webinar.

The following overview guides you through these changes.

When you first open the program, you will notice that the opening screen looks different. Instead of a menu bar, you will see tabs and the home ribbon, which looks like this:
From here, you can open or create Recipes, Ingredients, Advanced Nutrition Labels, or Food Menus. You also access Preferences and the Nutrients to View screens here.

If a Recipe is open, the save and print options will be available, and the Edit Recipe and Reports tabs will open:

From the Edit tab, you can modify items within your open Recipe:


From the Recipe tab, you can access Yields, Set Serving Size, Groups, etc. and the Label options. Previously, all of these were hidden under various menu items.
