Training - Optimization of the formulation and nutritional constraints



  • Enable food industry players to easily improve the Nutri-Score® of their products by optimizing their recipes from a nutritional point of view, thanks to linear programming.
  • Introducing a tool accessible to all, and learning how to use it independently.
  • The tool allows you to integrate constraints on ingredient quantities, prices and nutrient contents, to quickly identify new recipes using Excel's Solver linear programming function.


  • Active and participative pedagogy.
  • Exchange of experiences and discussions.
  • Presentations, slide shows, practical exercises.
  • Trainees' evaluation of the course.
  • Provision of documentation and training materials.
  • Assessment of trainee learning by questionnaire or case study
  • Issuance of a certificate of training

    Content of the training

  • Nutritional context
  • Introduction to linear programming
  • Presentation of an Excel formulation tool
  • Practical part: Putting reformulation into practice using the calculation tool on a concrete case study

The CTCPA offers a nutrition training course dedicated to optimizing formulation to meet nutritional constraints.

Discover how to optimize your recipes using an Excel tool, or how to respond to nutritional constraints (nutriscore, ultra-processed products, etc.) The CTCPA's training will enable you to acquire all the skills you need to optimize your formulations!
