    English is difficult. I use google translation. It is not spam.

    Please tell me how to calculate “calorie weighted basis”.

    It was written in the forum.
    It uses a modified Atwater coefficient.

    Below is the forum.

    Forum of May 18, 2016. https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/forums/topic/calorie/

    The modified atwater factor requires protein, lipids and carbohydrates.

    “Guaranteed Analysis” exists.

    What is the origin of proteins, lipids and carbohydrates used for the modified atwater factor?

    Thank you.

    Hello thank,

    The information is taken from the guaranteed analysis. Carbohydrate is calculated based on 100% – (protein +lipid+ash+moisture+fiber)

    Some assumptions are made as the guaranteed analysis reports minimums and maximums. Calling the company and getting actual levels is more accurate.

    You can use this calculator https://secure.balanceit.com/tools/_gaconverter/
