Research Project: IMPROVING THE ACCURACY OF BEEF NUTRIENT DATA IN THE USDA NATIONAL NUTRIENT DATABASE FOR STANDARD REFERENCE –-- PHASE I, II, III, IV & V

Location: Nutrient Data

Project Number: 1235-52000-061-24
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: May 01, 2007
End Date: Apr 30, 2012

Objective:
To support, update and maintain the food composition and nutrient values for beef and beef products in the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference (SR) in order to assure currency of data.

Approach:
This project will include several approaches to meet the objectives which include: the addition of new beef items to the SR, revision of current beef items in the SR, and deletion of beef products no longer on the retail market from the SR. Furthermore, collaborative studies will be conducted to obtain nutrient and composition infomation for new cuts. A new special interest table will be developed to provide nutrient information required for labeling of single ingredient meats.
