Question What does "yields" mean?

Have a 6 oz box of blackberries. Fitday says A: 6 "oz yields", B: 6 oz, C:
grower says 170 grams:
A: B: C:
Cals. 69.7. 73.1. 83
Fat. .79. .83. 1.2
Satfat. .023. .024. ?
Chol. 0. 0. 0
Salt. 1.6. 1.7. 0
Potas 262.4. 275.6. 245.0
Carbs 15.6. 16.3. 17
Fiber. 8.6. 9.0. ?
Prot. 2.3. 2.4. 1.7

This fabulous chart probably won't send very well, but its intention is to show the differences - and begs another question: use packer or fitday data?

Finally, I see "yields" with meat listings, too and assume this might mean what you get after cooking. Is that right?

Thanks in advance for any input.

Yields is just another form of measurement for your food... 6oz = 170g. For blueberries 6oz would be approx 3/4 to 1 cup depending on the density.

For my salad dressing the whole bottle is 16 fluid ounces which equals 16, 1 oz servings or 16, 30 gram servings or 16, 2 tablespoon servings or 2 cups total.

Thanks for your reply, vabeachgal, but I probably messed up my question. Here goes again: I weigh my blackberries on my scale. It says 6 oz. I open my FitDay food charts, and it gives me several choices. One is "oz yields", another is "oz". The nutrient values are different for each. I wonder why the differences, and wonder which I should use for the most accurate inputs...
