Instead of dozens of pictures, if you are curious how to get the most vitamin A per Calorie, use the excel file and sort.
The Math- Dividing By Max To Remove Dimensions
The units were a bit daunting, ie: (micrograms of Folate Per gram of food)
We removed the dimensions-
Rank= Nutrient Per Gram / Best(max) Nutrient Per Gram
We then add the nutrients that the USDA provided. Summed up…
Nutrients Per Gram Ranked
This is probably most useful for hikers who are trying to limit the weight of food.
Nutrients Per Calorie Ranked
This was my real fascination, what are the most nutrient dense foods per calorie?
This is what many people would consider ‘The Healthiest Foods’.
Fresh Green Veggies top the list of highest Nutrients Per Calorie.
Peanuts and Almonds are relatively light weight and are packed with Nutrients.
Fortified foods like Cereal and Flour scored high in Nutrient Per Gram, but low in Nutrient Per Calorie.
Anything shown on the list is in the top 30% of foods studied, if your goal is to maximize, consume more foods on the list.
