USDA Nutrient Data Set for Retail Meat Cuts: Beef, Lamb, Pork and Veal

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Nutrient Data Laboratory (NDL), in collaboration with the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, National Pork Board, American Lamb Board, and meat scientists at selected universities, has conducted several research studies designed to update and expand nutrient data on retail meat cuts in the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference (SR). These studies have provided current and accurate estimates of data to update SR, and the study results have been incorporated into data sets that can be used for nutrient labeling. NDL has developed these data sets, presented in an easy-to-use table format.

NASS - Quick Stats

The Quick Stats Database is the most comprehensive tool for accessing agricultural data published by the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). It allows you to customize your query by commodity, location, or time period. You can then visualize the data on a map, manipulate and export the results as an output file compatible for updating databases and spreadsheets, or save a link for future use. Quick Stats contains official published aggregate estimates related to U.S. agricultural production. County level data are also available via Quick Stats.

Product System Model of United States Poultry Production 2010

This product system represents the poultry meat produced for human consumption as a result of producing one broiler. Both types of live weight poultry are at the farm gate, ready for transport to the processing plant, although not necessarily at the same farm. It includes the fraction of a spent hen attributable to the production of one broiler.

Data from: Color Analysis of Storage Roots from the USDA, ARS Sweetpotato Germplasm Collection

The periderm (skin) and stele (flesh) of sweet potato storage roots were measured using a Konica Minolta Chroma Meter, and data were recorded using the CIE 1976 L*a*b* and CIE L*C*h* color spaces. Data parameters presented are lightness (L*), red-green coordinate (a*), yellow-blue coordinate (b*), color intensity or chroma (C*), and hue angle (H*). Also included in this data set are percentage dry matter and root densities as these data are correlated to color values.
