What are Stock Templates?

The Stock Item Templates can be used to limit or restrict which Stock Items are available for a Site to use in recipes and menus.
For example, a Site with a high demand for Kosher or Halal dietary requirements will benefit from a large selection of Halal or Kosher Items for increased variety when weekly menus are created. In comparison other Sites with less demand for Halal or Kosher menu options would only require a smaller selection of Kosher and Halal Stock items.
