Accurate enough to give you a good feel for the nutrition, but not accurate enough to plan the menus for a mission to Mars around. I enter recipes in the MasterCook program, which gets its information mostly from the USDA food composition databases. As needed, I modify MasterCook to include new products or make existing ones more in line with the actual products I use, based on package lables. And of course every batch is a little different, depending on factors such as where the plants were grown, how they were stored, and how they were cooked.
