< FACID > fatty acids, total
Unit: g
Comments: Two data items are required for tagname <FACID>: the total quantity of fatty acids and identification of the conversion factor used to calculate this value from the quantity of total fat. If the conversion factor was taken from a table in one of the sources identified by the keywords listed below, the keyword should be used during data interchange. Otherwise, the conversion factor can be explicitly stated within a secondary tagname. It is also acceptable to include both a keyword and the specific conversion factor in the data.
Keywords: The available keywords for those tables that list the conversion factors for calculating total fatty acids from total fat are:
MW McCance and Widdowson (10)
USDA USDA Handbook No. 8 (12)
The secondary tagname for identifying a specific fatty acid conversion factor is:
