Using scanned-package data vs Generic Database -- Which one's more correct?
So I am trying to log some chicken drumstick I got from Costco. I used the barcode scanner (mobile app) on the package and it listed "Kirkland Signature, Fresh Chicken Drumsticks"
- Do the macros in the entry above pertain to cooked or raw?
- When weighing the package, the result includes the packaging itself as well as the juices. Obviously after cooking it, the weight would change. How can I plan out my meals if I can't accurately weigh the ingredients beforehand?
- Does the value include the bone as well?
- When comparing the generic "Chicken Drumsticks, Skin Eaten" from the NCCDB, I get different values for the same weight. Why does this happen?
Not really complaining here because I love cronometer but I am confused about the issues above. If anybody could clarify, I'd really appreciate it.
