TechWizard™ is a formulation Swiss army knife. It provides key product development, labeling, and formulation features in an intuitive, easy to use software program.
TechWizard™ makes it easy to prepare a nutrition facts panel, spec sheet, nutrition data sheet, ingredient statement, or allergen statement for any food product. Formulas can be adjusted for moisture and/or fat content. Information can be printed, saved as a PDF document, or as an Excel file. Create a high quality graphics file for your Nutrition Facts in a variety of formats. TechWizard™ can also create “Milk Based” labels for processed cheese.
Ingredient Specification Sheet
Ingredient specification sheets are a snap with TechWizard™. This specification sheet can be created for either a formula or an ingredient and it can include information on any property including Kosher status, organic status and allergen content. Put your company’s logo at the top of report and print or save as a PDF document or an Excel file. Our new report was featured in a recent article in Food Technology on nutrition labeling. This feature is making its debut in TechWizard™ Version 4.

Owl Software is the industry leader for formulating and evaluating frozen dessert products.
- Least Cost Formulation & Formula Cost Analysis
TechWizard™ is the perfect formulation tool especially for nutrient drinks, nutrient bars, meat, dairy products, cultured products, frozen desserts, processed cheese and snack foods. It can quickly provide cost analysis for any amount of product. With TechWizard™ you can prepare least-cost formulations while setting limits on a variety of properties such as fat, total solids, protein, calories, sodium, sweetness, etc. Create your own properties or build complex property equations to formulate for any requirement.
Goal Oriented Formulation
One of the more difficult tasks involved with developing a new formulation is determining how much of each ingredient to use to meet compositional, quality, and flavor goals. In the beginning stages of product development the researcher may only be interested in knowing if such a formulation can be found. You may be starting from a recipe in a cookbook. You may need to trim fat, sodium and/or calories from your products. We refer to this process as goal oriented formulation. TechWizard™ has special features that help you determine your goals and how to meet them.
Need to duplicate an existing product or determine if someone is infringing on a patent? TechWizard™ has the capability to use product analyses results or a product's nutrition label and the ingredient list to develop an equivalent formulation.
Specialized Food Product Calculations
TechWizard™ has specialized calculations to aid in formula evaluation and development.
Ingredient Request Wizard™
When you are developing a new product, preparing a nutrition label, or an allergen statement you need the latest ingredient information from your suppliers. This is a simple task with Owl Software’s new Ingredient Request Wizard™. This new feature allows you to update ingredient composition, Kosher status, organic status and allergen content with the click of a button. This feature is making its debut in TechWizard™ Version 4.
Ingredient information is easily entered and edited in the ingredient file. The entire USDA Food Composition database is also provided. The new master ingredient file feature makes it easy to update and maintain multiple ingredient files. The Ingredient Request Wizard™ makes it easy to get the latest information from your vendors. Multiple users can edit the ingredient file simultaneously.
TechWizard™ has unique features that make it a great addition to your Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), or Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) software. With TechWizard™ we can quickly create a data bridge to share valuable information with other software programs and databases.
