Estimating Component Values - Beef


 Updated 2017-03-17

 USDA regression analysis for beef data

Roseland et al (2013) describe the collaborative study conducted to determine the mathematical relationship between individual nutrients and fat content of raw retail beef cuts from which a regression analysis can be performed.
The data have been published in tables that provide nutrient profiles for raw and cooked beef cuts of varying fat content.
Using reverse engineering on these raw beef data, it is possible to deduct the regression equations. The results are listed below.
