USING A PDCAAS VALUE TO DISPLAY %DV PROTEIN ON A NUTRITION LABEL
Software program: Genesis R&D Food
In order to list % DV for protein on a Nutrition Facts label, you will need to determine a food’s PDCAAS (protein digestibility corrected amino acid score) value and use it to calculate the %DV. The PDCAAS of a product is a value between 0 and 1.0 that is entered by the user. The value may be determined by lab analysis or may be determined mathematically.
This tutorial will show you how to calculate a PDCAAS value and display a %DV for protein on your nutrition facts label.
