Personalized Allergen/Nutrition menus are helping restaurant guests with dietary restrictions to take fear out of buying food online
(RestaurantNews.com) Food Allergies is a serious public health issue. According to Food Allergy and Research Foundation (foodallergy.org), 32+ million Americans have food allergies, and the number is growing every year. Other types of Dietary Restrictions include religious restrictions, lifestyle choices or medical conditions. In addition, a growing number of health-conscious Americans want to get more accurate nutritional information about the food they buy from restaurants. When you sum it up, over 35% of restaurant guests are looking for allergen or nutrition information.
With the recent pandemic-induced surge in online ordering, the need for the availability of allergen or nutrition information in a digital format has increased substantially. Many restaurants provide the information in static PDF formats that are challenging to interpret. As a result, the restaurant guests with dietary restriction are never sure whether the food they are buying online fits their needs.
BigZpoon’s Personalized and Interactive Allergen/Nutrition Menu System, is a novel technology that takes the fear out of buying food online. BigZpoon Founder & CEO, Sanjeev Ukhalkar, explains how it works: “Once the guests have entered their preferences, our AI driven software guides them to choose the right meal options by clearly marking the items and choices that fit their restrictions. Further, our real-time nutrition calculator keeps accurate track of all nutritional details for chosen meal items and alerts the guest when the goals are exceeded.”
BigZpoon’s menu system is built in a way that it is an integral part of online food ordering process flow. It can be an add-on to the restaurant’s existing ordering system or can be a stand-alone ordering system. Using this process flow, restaurant guests can efficiently place orders taking into account their unique set of dietary/food restrictions. Delivery option is also available.
