Hi, everyone.

I am new to this site, and I have a question I'm hoping ya'll can help me with. I've looked everywhere for the answer, but I can't find it to save my life. The answer may very well be right under my nose. Please help.

For the meat items listed on fatsecret.com, is the nutritional information for the food COOKED or RAW? For example, the website states that 95% lean ground beef contains 38 calories per 1 ounce. Is this 1 ounce weighed AFTER the beef is cooked, or is it 1 ounce weighed raw (BEFORE the beef is cooked)?

Thank you!!

I always thought it meant raw unless it specifically stated cooked, but now I'm wondering the same thing. I looked up the listing for 1 oz
Ground Beef (95% Lean / 5% Fat) & there are 3 different versions provided by the USDA.

1 oz Ground Beef (95% Lean / 5% Fat)
cals 38 fat 1.4g protein 5.99g

1 oz Ground Beef (95% Lean / 5% Fat, Patty, Cooked, Broiled)
cals 48 fat 1.86g protein 7.45g

1 oz Ground Beef (95% Lean / 5% Fat, Patty, Cooked, Pan-Broiled)
cals 46 fat 1.68g protein 7.31g

I don't see how if the first one is for raw that everything would go up when cooking. It should go down because of loosing fat & juices during cooking. Maybe the first listing is if all the juices are drained, like grilling, and the other 2 are higher because broiled would be cooked in it's own juices? So IMO it's after cooking.
