FW  = Fresh Weight
DW  = Dry Weight (Dry Basis)
M     = % Moisture/100
TIU   = Trypsin Inhibitor Units
HU   = Hemagglutination units

Conversions

Converting % Fresh Weight to % Dry Weight (Dry Basis):
% DW = % FW / (1.0 - M)
mg/g DW = (mg/g FW) / (1.0 - M)
mg/kg DW = (ppm FW) / (1.0 - M)

Converting Dry Weight (Dry Basis) to Fresh Weight:
% FW = % DW * (1.0 - M)
mg/g FW = (mg/g DW) * (1.0 - M)
mg/kg FW = (mg/kg DW) * (1.0 - M)

Converting TIU/mg FW to TIU/g DW:
TIU/g DW = (TIU/mg FW) *1000/ (1.0 - M)

Converting TIU/g DW to TIU/mg FW:
TIU/mg FW = ((TIU/g DW) * (1.0 - M) ) /1000


Scaling Units & Relative Units

Scaling Units
mg/g FW = 10.0 * (% FW)
% FW = (mg/g FW) / 10.0
μg/g FW = 10.0 * (mg/100g FW)
mg/100g FW = (μg/g FW) / 10.0

mg/kg = ppm

Relative Units
TotalAA = The sum of analyte values with the same Data_Source, Study_ID, and Sample_ID and whose Analyte Category Code is AMINO ACIDS.  

TotalP = The value of the analyte CRUDE PROTEIN.  

TotalFA = The sum of analyte values with the same Data_Source, Study_ID, and Sample_ID and whose Analyte Category Code is FATTY ACIDS.  


Σ() = The summarization function  

AAi= Individual Amino Acid value
FAi= Individual Fatty Acid value

Units for Amino Acids
% Total Amino Acids = ((mg/g FW AAi) / Σ(mg/g FW TotalAA )) * 100
% Total Protein = ((mg/g FW AAi) / ((% FW TotalP )*10)) * 100

Units for Fatty Acids
% Total Fatty Acids = (% FW FAi / Σ( % FW TotalFA )) * 100
