Software Idea

You enter the ingredients list and nutritional information of a food product, like what's printed on the package. The system looks up the nutritional data for each individual ingredient. That information, plus the inequalities implied by the order of the ingredients list, allows it to solve for the relative quantities of each ingredient (giving ranges where an exact amount can't be determined, such as for ingredients with no measured nutritional value).

Basically I want to reverse engineer this here granola.
