Carefully follow the steps in the Discussion.
A total of four food items (2 from plant sources, 2 from animal sources) should be selected for your post.
A total of eight (8) Search Tool Food Codes should be included in your table. One food code for each prepared/cook food item and one food code for each raw food item.
Macromolecules in Foods
The Agricultural Research Services division of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) maintains a database containing nutrient information for various foods.
GOAL: Compare the impact of cooking and/or preparation on the macronutrient content of four different food items with the macronutrient content of the same four food items in their raw form
Step 1: Visit What’s in the Foods You Eat Search Tool provided by the USDA.
Step 2: Use the Food Coding Scheme (also found at the “What’s in the Foods You Eat” USDA website) to search for four (4) cooked or prepared (not raw) food items (2 from plant sources, 2 from animal sources)
Step 3: Enter the name of each of the four food items and their corresponding Tool codes in the table below (link to MS Word table)
Step 4: Enter the weight (grams) and serving size of each food item
Step 5: Enter the protein, carbohydrate, and lipid (fat) content (in grams) for your four food items in the table
Step 6: In the Preparation column of the table below, state how the food item you chose was cooked or prepared. Remember you are choosing cooked or prepared food items, rather than raw food items for the data in the table.
Step 7: ANALYSIS in COMMENT Column: Conduct further examination of your four food items in the Tool to compare the macronutrient content (proteins, carbohydrates, fats) for the same foods as raw (uncooked, no preparation) with the macronutrient content for the cooked/prepared food items you selected.
Include the Tool code for the raw food item in the Comment section.
In the Comment column of the table below, discuss what you determined about the impact of cooking (or other preparation) on macronutrient content (proteins, carbohydrates, fats) for each of your four food items.
Discuss which macronutrients changed due to cooking or preparation as well as discuss the specific amount (grams or percentage) of the change.
