Easy-to-use for teaching and research

For around 15 years we’ve used FoodWorks for teaching collection and analysis of dietary data to our Exercise and Sports Sciences students. We also use FoodWorks for our research projects.

We find FoodWorks easy to use and it provides excellent reports that are useful for all our purposes.

I have had great experiences with Xyris when it comes to product support and assistance with teaching resources.

For the next generation of food industry professionals

Your food science and nutrition students can use the same software as large and small Australian and NZ food companies.

As they practise formulating new products, your students can track the effect of changing ingredients and their quantities on nutrition.

They can also learn how to produce food labels that rigorously comply with the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code and other relevant regulations.
