Procedures for Estimating Nutrient Values for Food Composition Databases

  title={Procedures for Estimating Nutrient Values for Food Composition Databases},
  author={Sally F. Schakel and I. Marilyn Buzzard and Susan E. Gebhardt},
When used to assess the nutrient content of diets, recipes, or commercial food products, a nutrient database should provide a complete nutrient profile for each food in the database. Chemical analyses for a wide range of nutrients in the many foods included in a database are not always practical. Therefore, some nutrient values must be estimated. Common methods for estimating nutrient values include (1) using values from a different but similar food, (2) calculating values from different forms… CONTINUE READING
