Edible yield is calculated by dividing edible meat by total body weight.

Carbon Footprint measures the total greenhouse gas emissions caused directly and indirectly by the production of a product. Carbon footprint is measured in tonnes of carbon dioxides equivalent (kgC002e) per tonne of the edible protein of the product.

Protein retention measures the gain in edible protein in relation to the consumed protein intake from food sources. It is calculated by percentage (grams protein in edible portion vs grams protein in feed)

Calorie retention measures the gain in edible calories of the product as a percentage of the calories consumed in the feed. It results in percentage calculation (calories in edible portion vs calories in feed).

Energy retention measures the efficiency of the product in relation to the energy retained from feed consumed. It is a calculated percentage (energy in edible parts vs gross energy fed).

Feed Conversion Ratio measures the efficiency of a protein to convert feed into desired output (meat)
