How does the nutritional information system work?
By now you’re probably familiar with the various parts of the nutrition information system that you need to know to be sure you’ve got all the nutrition you need.
You might also be aware that you can download the Nutrient Profile and Nutrient Database files that are included with your food packages.
This page explains the basics of the nutritional system.
We’ve also made this page more accessible by including a brief introduction to each of the main parts of a system.
Nutrition Facts This page tells you about the nutrient composition of a given food.
It also contains a breakdown of the types of nutrients and the amounts of each type of nutrient found in the food.
The Nutrient Summary table provides a breakdown for a given nutrient by type, source and type of source.
Nutrient Type Source Amount (mg) Total Fat (g) Sodium (mg)* Carbs (g)* Protein (g*) Cholesterol (mg*) Cholesterol: mg* Vitamin D (mcg) Vitamin E (mc*) Vitamin K (mg*) Calcium (mg ) Iron (mg%) Vitamin B6 (mg mg) Sodium Phosphorus (mg/g) Magnesium (mg / g) Potassium (mg g) Phosphorous (mg kg/kg) Vitamin C (mg cobalamin / g calcium / g potassium / g sodium) Vitamin B12 (mg b12 / g rhodamine / g thiamine / g riboflavin / g folic acid / g niacin) Vitamin D3 (mg calcium / mg manganese / mg thiamin / mg pantothenic acid / mg vitamin D3) Vitamin A (nmol / g chromium / g cochineal / g selenium / selenocysteine / mg lutein / ng pantothepene / g biotin / g pyridoxine hydrochloride / g vitamin B12) Vitamin R (nmols / g iridium / g molybdenum / g manganous oxide / g copper / g zinc / g aluminum / g nickel) Vitamin G (nmoles / g carotenoids / g flavonoids / guarana) Vitamin J (nmole / g anthocyanins / g cyanidins / guanine / guaoxanthe / pyrroloquinolone / carotene) Vitamin S (nmomolecular weight / g arabinoxylan / g luteolin / g guanidine / g quercetin / guaiacol / guayana) Potentiometric Properties of Nutrients When it comes to nutrients, you have two types of nutritional properties: quantitative and qualitative.
Quantitative properties are used to measure the nutritional value of a food or foodstuff.
For example, when it comes a foodstuff, you might calculate the nutritional content of the product by dividing its mass by its volume.
For instance, say you’re a food processor and you have a product that’s 300 grams in weight and has an estimated value of 12.5 grams per 100 grams of mass.
In this example, the nutritional values would be: (calculated weight × 300 g/100 g) × (calculated mass × 12.50 grams/100 grams) = (1,600,000,000) grams.
If you calculate this quantity for the product, the final nutritional value would be 12.9 grams.
Quantification is also used to quantify the composition of the food, which is the percentage of its calories from fat, carbohydrate and protein.
For this reason, quantitative properties are often used to calculate the nutrient content of a product.
Quantified properties are calculated for a food based on its mass and weight.
For the example above, if the food was 300 grams, the measured value of the quantified mass of the 100 grams would be 3.8 grams per hundred grams.
As you can see, if you calculate the nutrition value of 300 grams by multiplying it by its mass, the calculated value would still be 3,8 grams.
When it come to foods, qualitative properties can be used to determine the nutrition content of foods that are processed or cooked, and how they taste.
For these types of food, the quantitative properties of the raw material can be considered the most accurate way of measuring nutritional values.
Quantifiers are the same for foods that come from the same source and processed together.
When you cook a raw food, you can measure its quantified properties by using a cooking pot to measure its mass.
For processed foods, you may use a food thermometer to measure how much heat is being applied to the food to determine its nutritional value.
The quantitative properties determine how much the food tastes, and the qualitative properties determine its nutrient content.
You can use a variety of quantitative and quantitative properties to calculate nutritional values of a whole food or processed food, and their nutrient content as well.
