    Protein Conversion Factor - The numerical conversion factor for calculating calories from protein. For mixed-ingredient food items, this release of USDA data provided zeros or blanks for this value. CyberSoft used a value of "4.00" to estimate the % Calories from Protein and the Calories from Protein values. (The original zeros and blanks are used, however, when the data is exported.) The protein conversion factor for every nutrient in every USDA food item is available in NutriBase Clinical Nutrition Manager and higher editions.

    Fat Conversion Factor - The numerical conversion factor for calculating calories from fat. For mixed-ingredient food items, this release of USDA data provided zeros or blanks for this value. CyberSoft used a value of "9.00" to estimate the % Calories from Fat and the Calories from Fat values. (The original zeros and blanks are used, however, when the data is exported.) The fat conversion factor for every nutrient for every USDA food item is available in NutriBase Clinical Nutrition Manager.

    Carbohydrate Conversion Factor - The numerical conversion factor for calculating calories from carbohydrate. For mixed-ingredient food items, this release of USDA data provided zeros or blanks for this value. CyberSoft used a value of "4.00" to estimate the % Calories from Carbohydrate and the Calories from Carbohydrate values. (The original zeros and blanks are used, however, when the data is exported.) The carbohydrate conversion factor for every nutrient in every USDA food item is available in NutriBase Clinical Nutrition Manager.

    It takes the most calories (energy) to convert fats to simple sugars (energy) and carhbohydrates the least.

    Another way to say it, is you burn more calories converting fats and protien into energy than carbohydrates.

When I downloaded it it just opened as a bunch of symbols because my program isn't compatible with Word. Was wondering if someone would be kind enough to convert it to rich text format as it's a universal format. Sorry again for the confusion.

    Thanks KLD. Like RoboPixie, I just got a load of symbols when I opened the document in Wordpad.
