Name - Enter the name of the ingredient.
Brand – Click on the Brand button in order
to add a brand name.
(Note: This is the only window where new
brand
names
can
be
added
to
the
database.)
Click on the Add button, type the name of
the brand and click on OK and then close
the window. The newly added brand name
will now appear in the Brand box. If there is
already a list of Brand names in the
database and you are adding an ingredient,
click on the dropdown in the brand combo
box and select from the list of brand names.
Supplier – If you know the name of the supplier start typing and the name will appear, otherwise click
on the dropdown and select from the list.
Cost – Enter the cost of the ingredient, tab to the next box and enter the amount and units that the
ingredient is supplied in, e.g.
New units can be added or existing units edited by clicking on the button next to the unit box. If you
click on the dropdown in the unit box you can select from the units that are already in the database.
Treat as Flour – Check this box if the ingredient is flour and the recipe that will be made with this
ingredient is bread, and all remaining ingredients will be entered as a percentage of flour.
Inactive – Check this box if you do not want the ingredient to appear in the Maintain Ingredient
window. This feature can be used for ingredients that are only used seasonally e.g. Christmas, Easter
and various holidays. In this way the ingredient will still remain in the database, but will not appear in
the list of ingredients until it is made active. This helps to reduce the list of ingredients which flexiBake
has to keep displaying.
NOTE: flexiBake will not allow you to delete any ingredients that are being used in any recipes that
are currently in the database. Only ingredients that are not being used in any recipes can be deleted.
