    I just invested some money in a smoothie operation here in Dallas. We were wanting to get nutrion facts for our smoothies.
    Like seeing how many calories, fat, carbs, bleh bleh bleh.

    Do we need to send that stuff to a lab to get analyzed or what?
    I don't trust those online calorie things that you calculate yourself.

    I don't know where to start so I'm asking you guys.

    If you guys help me there's free smoothies in it for you guys :noes:

    Our most popular one is Strawberry Banana Smoothie.
    4 oz of water
    .5 oz of green apple syrup
    .5 oz kiwi syrup
    1 scoop of frozen strawberries
    1 scoop of frozen bananas
    6 oz of Non Fat Frozen Yogurt and Ice.

    We get our syrups from Tawain, cause we're really a bubble tea shop that sells smoothies.
    But with all the bitches complaining about how we don't have nutrition facts is our want to get these things.

    The estimates of the syrup that's o nthe labels I think is wrong.
    But We want to have them professionally done.

    Thanks :)

    from what I understand you basically ship your product off to a lab and they do their thing and you get a sheet with all the info on it

    I don't mean to offend you. But if you started a business, I would have assumed that you would be capable of figuring this information out for yourself. Either way good luck bro. If I ever go over that way I'm buying one, as long as you got the nutritional info. :)
