How to read a food composition table
A food composition table provides a set of information available for a given food.
All values are given as per 100 g edible part of the food, i.e. meat without bone, apple without core, etc.
The food composition table provides the following information for each component (when available):
· content value (aggregated value),
· minimum and maximum values found in the different data sources,
· number of samples used to determine the selected value,
· reference code corresponding to data sources for a given value,
· confidence code (A, B, C or D) characterizing the quality of the selected value.
