In the USDA nutrition database (NDL/FNIC Food Composition Database Home Page
) some foods like salmon, shrimp, meat and poultry are listed as raw and also cooked. When the calorie and nutrient content is measured in their lab for raw fish/meat/poultry is the product frozen or does the raw meat/fish/poultry mean that the calorie/ nutrient content was measures after it was thawed?
When calculating the calorie content of my food I am unsure to weigh it frozen or thaw it to get the most accurate nutritional info as listed in their database.
I apologize is this seems anal or OCD but I'm pretty strict with my calories.
Any info or clarification would be much appreciated.
