A standardized recipe form is the physical piece of paper or computer file used by numerous food service institutions to record a standardized recipe. This form lists the ingredients, preparation techniques, serving sizes, nutritional values and other required information for one particular recipe.
National and local restaurants and catering services, institutional food service providers, mass production food manufacturers and entrepreneurial or home-based food businesses all use standardized recipes and forms. Different states have different laws and regulations regarding the creation of standardized recipes, form styles and required recipe information. Standardized recipes and forms also help provide consistent quality, control costs and streamline inventory and ordering procedures.
