Egg – package nutrition data doesn't make sense
I buy biological chicken eggs from Germany.
The nutrition data on the package:
100g = 153 kcal, 11g fat (3,3g saturated), 0,6g carbs, 13g protein, 0,32g sodium.
1 egg (60g) = 97 kcal 7g (2g saturated), 0,4g carbs, 8g protein, 0,19g sodium.
0,60×153 kcal = 91.8g (so why does it say 1 egg of 60g is 97 kcal?
Also I weighed each egg with shell separately, and each weighs approx. 58g.
Without shell, they weigh approx 51g.
Cronometer data for 1 raw egg:
51g = 79 kcal
60g = 93 kcal
So basically, 1 egg does not have 60g of edible content. Yet there’s supposedly 97 kcal in 1 egg. And how come on the package, the relative kcal on the 100g data is lower than the 1 egg data?
And to double the discrepancy, 60g on cronometer is lower than the supposed kcal of 1 egg according to the package, even though the edible content is 51g and therefore lower than 60g.
So all in all:
Edible content per egg on package =
-78 kcal if u subtract from the 100g data
-82.5 kcal if u subtract from the 1 egg data
Or if you take 51g of the raw egg cronometer data = 79 kcal
Should I just type in 51g in cronometer for a 79 kcal (seeing as calculating solely by the edible content, all data show 79 kcal per egg) or should I just blindly follow the package and assume the 97 kcal per egg?
