in ground beef nutrition labelling
By December 2005 most packaged foods, including raw ground beef, will have a new mandatory Nutrition Facts table. This information will help you assess the nutritional value of foods and compare food products more easily. The Nutrition Facts table will list Calories and 13 key nutrients. Here is a sample of the Nutrition Facts table for packages of raw Lean Ground Beef.
Nutrition Matters: Fat values in the Nutrition Facts table are for raw ground beef. Cooking reduces that amount of fat on average by one third, since fat drips out when barbecuing or broiling and can be drained off after pan-frying.
