1 Samples cultivated on fertilized soil.
2 The total protein value reported was reduced by 1/3 as it is assumed that only 2/3 of the nitrogen in mushrooms is considered as protein nitrogen. The food energy was calculated before this assumption was made.
3 For mature, red, peppers, the value is about 2, 760 micrograms per 100 grams.
4 Values vary greatly due to the color of the pulp. Deep-orange pulp is reported to have higher value than the pale pulp.
