Equations & tools

  1. Some institutions and reference examples use the value 9 to calculate kcals per gram of Lipid while others use 10. Which does Nutrition-Toolbox™ use? Nutrition-Toolbox™ lets you decide that as you go. You may choose 9, 10, or enter your own values anywhere between 8.5 and 10.5. Other products chose a number and hard code it (unchangeable by the user) - making you do extra math to re-scale your numbers to theirs. This is one example revealing the depth of usability of Nutrition-Toolbox™ - there are many other examples!
