INFORMATION FOR STANDARDIZED RECIPES
Standardized recipes are a necessity for a well-run food service operation. All of the recipes have been developed, tested
and standardized for product quality, consistency and yield. Recipes are the most effective management tool for guiding
the requisitioning of supplies and controlling breakouts and inventory. The U. S. Dietary Guidelines were among the
many considerations in both the selection and development of the recipes included in the file. Many of the recipes have
been modified to reduce fat, salt and calories. For new and experienced cooks, consistent use of standardized recipes is
essential for quality and economy. The Armed Forces Recipe Service contains over 1600 tested recipes yielding 100
portions printed on cards.
Yield - The quantity of cooked product a recipe produces. The yield for each recipe in the Armed Forces Recipe is
generally given as 100 portions and in some recipes in count or volume, e.g., 2 pans, 8 loaves, 6-1/2 gallons. Portion size
is key to determining the quantity of food to be prepared. Many recipes also specify the weight per portion. For example,
3/4 cup (6-1/2 ounces) Beef Stroganoff.
