  • Cooked weight or raw weight?

    On the nutrition info label on a pack of chicken breast I have, it says that, per 100g, it gives 23g of protein. Now is that before or after it is cooked? Or doesn't it make any difference?

    As you buy it
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

          That being said, I don't think you lose any protein when you cook meats. Some fat runs off and some water, but not protein.

            Yeah - mostly lose water weight while cooking. But this is good to know for any measurements

              You can find both raw weight and cooked weight in your references.
