Presentation Transcript
• Calculate appropriate amount of food to meet the meal pattern
• Standardized formula to calculate any number of servings
• Additional information to assist a food service in planning, preparing and serving nourishing meals
• Divided into sections based on the meal components
• Also, has an alphabetized index if you are not sure what component a food item would be
Example: Ground Beef, no more than 20% fat

Column 2: Pound

Column 3: 11.8 for 1 oz cooked lean meat

OR 7.89 for 1 ½ oz

Column 4: 1 oz cooked lean meat

Column 5: 8.5 lbs

Column 6: l lb AP = 0.74 lb cooked,

drained lean meat

A Standardized Formula*

Purchase Xnumber of svg needed Xsvg size needed

Units for number of svg listed svg size listed =

100 Svgs (FBG Col. 4)

(Col. 5)

• (B) (C)

QUANITY NEEDED

(D)

*Formula developed with the guidance of Dr. E.L. Miller, Professor of Mathematics, University of Mississippi

Step 2:

A. Purchase units for 100 svgs

(FBG Column 5) = 3.0 # 10 cans

B. # servings needed = 460 = 4.6

# servings listed 100

• Svg size needed = ½ cup = .50 = 2

Svg size listed ¼ cup .25

• Quantity needed:

(a) 3.0 X (b) 4.6 X (c) 2 = (d) 27.6 # 10 cans

Step 3:

27.6 #10 cans needed = 28 cans

Ex: Ground Beef, 20% fat

Step 2:

• Purchase unit for 100 servings

(FBG column 5) = 8.5 lbs/100 1-oz svgs

• #svgs needed = 230 = 2.3

# svgs listed = 100

• Svg size needed = 2 oz = 2

Svg size listed 1 oz

• Quantity needed:

(a) 8.5 X (b) 2.3 X (c) 2 = (d) 39.1 lbs

Ex: Crinkle-Cut French Fries
• Step 2:
• Purchase unit for 100 svgs
• (FBG column 5) = 8.0 lbs
• B. # servings needed = 380 = 3.8
• # servings needed 100
• Svg size needed = 1/2 cup = .50 = 2
• Svg size listed ¼ cup .25
• Quantity needed:
• (a) 8.0 X (b) 3.8 X (c) 2 = 60.8 lbs
Ex: Green Peas, frozen

Step 2:

• Purchase unit for 100 svgs

(FBG column 5) = 10.5 lbs

B. # servings needed = 330 = 3.3

# servings needed 100

• Svg size needed = 1/2 cup = .50 = 2

Svg size listed ¼ cup .25

• Quantity needed:

(a) 10.5 X (b) 3.3 X (c) 2 = 69.3 lbs
