Estimating Component Values - Beef


 Updated 2017-03-16

 Estimating Component Values of Beef

Summary

Quite a few investigations have been carried out on nutrients in beef and veal. There is therefore a solid basis to reveal eventual relationships between the proximates, vitamins and/or minerals in beef and veal cuts. Here some of the relationships between fat or moisture against vitamin and mineral content are given.

USDA - The Ground Beef Calculator

The currently most visible application of regression analysis of food data is the USDA Ground Beef Calculator .
Reverse engineering of the USDA Ground Beef Calculator's information in USDA regression analysis for beef data reveals the linear dependencies.
