Nutritional composition of selected wild and farmed raw fish

Analysis report from Norwegian Food Safety Authority, Norwegian Directorate of Health and the Department of Nutrition at University of Oslo, 2012.
The report gives a detailed description of the sampling, analysis and the work with the results until the published values in the Food Composition table. Original, the samples were collected in order to monitor the content of contaminant in wild and farmed fish. No large differences in nutrient were found compared to the old values in the earlier versjon of the Norwegian Food Composition table (MVT-06) for the relevant fish types. The most notable finding was lower concentration of vitamin D in mackerel, and the cholesterol values were somewhat higher than earlier values for all types of fish.

The nutritional composition of Norwegian white wheat flour, 78% extraction

Analysis report from Norwegian Food Safety Authority, Norwegian Directorate of Health and social affairs and the Department of Nutrition at University of Oslo, 2008.
The report gives a detailed description of the sampling, analyses and the work with the results until the published values in the Food Composition table. Generally, only small differences were seen between the nutrient content of household flour and industrial flour, between flour based on the 2003 crop and flour based on the 2004 crop, between flour from mills in different parts of the country, and between different flour types. The nutritional composition in wheat flour was not notably changed after six months of storage.
