Does weight include the parts you don't eat?
If I select a raw chicken leg from the database, what are the macronurients based on?
In other words is the nutritional value for 100gr chicken:
- 100gr meat?
- 100gr meat + bones?***
*** = No I don't eat the bones :-). I'm just wondering it's assumed x% of a chicken is bones and for that reason the nutrients for 100gr chicken are reduced by that percentage.
Is a banana peel part of the weight listed in the database? A banana peel is a considerble percentage of it's weight.
Coconut: Does it include the juice? The shell?
Right now I'm looking at the wrapper of Sportlife gum. 100gr contains 64gr carbs. Most likely that's so, but as long as you don't swallow the gum, you'll never get that amount of carbs in your system. Gum doesn't het 64% lighter when chewing it.
