Default How do I find this out?

Hi everyone. Was wondering if you could help me with this.


I have some frozen fish, and I need 60 grams of protein.
Normally I'd have 3 pieces, assuming 1, was 20 grams of protein, like it said on the packet.

However it dawned on me yesterday, that I might not be getting 20 grams per piece, because the fish is frozen.

each piece ways about 5oz and a quarter, which is 143-ish grams.

The packet states that 100 grams as sold, is 20 grams of protein, but once you've cooked the fish, they're allot smaller.

So basically the fish is holding allot of water because they're frozen.


So am I really getting 20 grams?


For example, say each piece was 100 grams. 100 grams of fish is 20 grams of protein, but the fish you weighed is only 100 grams because it's carrying water.

I don't know weather the fish is weighed, nutrition calculated for that weighed piece, then frozen, weighed again, then labled depending on how much the fish is frozen, which would mean each piece did have the protein it said on the packet.

OR

They pulled the amount of protein in a piece of fish per 100 grams from the FDA records or UK equivalent, then froze it.
So you wouldn't actually be getting 100 grams per piece, but say 60 grams, + 40 grams of water.
Meaning also less protein.


This will seem like I'm overcomplicating things here, which to some degree I am, but I don't want to miss out on my protein thats all.


Thanks

- LG

you're good man. All macro and calorie counts are estimations anyways. Sometimes it'll be a little more, sometimes a little less. You're diet is about as close to perfect as you can get, so a few numbers being off isn't going to matter.

usually the nutritional facts on the back of the meat is when it is raw not cooked. so raw or frozen its the same weight esp if its in the sealed package.
