“Are You Sure It’s Fat Free?” 2 Are You Sure It’s Fat Free? I gathered three of my favorite foods: Pillsbury Toaster Strudel, strawberry flavor, Cranberry Almond Crunch and Activia Yogurt, vanilla flavor. I enjoy eating these not only at breakfast, but throughout the day as a snack. I will analyze, through mathematical formula, the fat content and protein content from my food choices, by using the mathematical formula found on page 236 in the textbook, Mathematics in Our World . (Bluman, A.G., 2005) To analyze the protein content I will use four (4) calories per gram of protein. Also, for my own benefit I used the food industry’s method to calculate the percentage of fat, so I could compare the differences. I will begin with Pillsbury Toaster Strudel, strawberry flavor. I enjoy eating these for breakfast. Serving size 1 pastry (54g) Calories for single serving 190 Fat content 8 grams Protein 3 g To solve the percent of calories from fat, you need to find the fat calories. Take the fat content and multiply it by 9. 8 grams x 9 grams of fat = 72 calories from fat
