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.
