Food Buying Guide Explanation

Click here for food buying guide.

In the Food Buying Guide (FBG), a serving of fruit may include the juice in which the fruit is packed (Section 2—Vegetables/Fruits pg. 2-1). Nu-Health Fruit consists of Grade A, hand selected Fruit packed in 100% natural juice, making our product ideal for your menu planning. In each category of the FBG, the purchase units for canned fruit are calculated in pounds. In order to get a figure that can be used to calculate how our product, measured in ounces, meets the guidelines we must divide the servings per purchase unit of 1 pound by 16 since there are 16 ounces in 1 pound. With this figure, we can calculate exactly how each of our 4.5oz and 9oz products meet the guidelines for the Food Buying Guide. See the example below:

Within the Food Buying Guide, purchase units for Mandarin Oranges are calculated in pounds. In order to get a figure that can be used for a product measured in ounces, we divide the servings per purchase unit of 1 pound by 16 because there are 16 ounces in 1 pound.

7.30 ÷ 16 = 0.45625

We now have a figure that can be used to calculate the creditable amount of our product that 4.5 ounces.

4.5 x 0.45625 = 2.05

We have show that there are 2.05 quarter cups (aka 1/2 cup) per 4.5oz serving.
