Just experiencing a bit of frustration with some supermarket labelling.
They have labelled the damn things up as having 130g per serving… sounds about right perhaps once its cooked.
Only upon closer inspection it looks like all they have done is find the value for 100g of just the cooked meat (no bone) and multiply it up by 1.3 (to get 130g - the weight of the entire final product once cooked including bone).
Now these are some quite large drumsticks so I’ve been doing a little bit of math.
Weight of pack = 1.45kg
Number of drumstucks = 8
Average weight per drumstick = 181g
Now I found one of those calorie counter websites that provided me with the value of 1oz of uncooked meat with bone:
Now 1oz = 23.49g
Soooo 181/23.49 gives me about 7.76. This is the amount I will multiply the values for the 1oz to get the protein/fat/carbs for 181g
End results were:
This is much higher then the database values for a large chicken drumstick:
The 2:1 protein to fat ratio is there pretty much but the serving size is sounding monsterous!
God damn trained label making monkeys.
I just need some help with regards to a more reliable source of nutritional data… or simply tell me if this even sounds right!
Got the info for 1oz chicken drumstick with bone, raw from the below link.
Also please before anyone tells me to stop counting and simply eat a metric-shit-tonne more and then refers to my current listed stats…
- They are not my current stats
- Im coming off a very low calorie diet and upping cals carefully at 250 a week till Im back at 3000 for maintenance.
