Question: How Do You Determine The Nutritional Value Of Substituting Ingredients?

March 3, 2010
If I was to take 3/4 lb of very lean ground beef - (85%) and mix in 3/4 cup of sunflower seeds (raw) to make hamburgers, how would I determine if the nutritional value (fat & vitamins) is better than using all beef in approx 1/3 lb burgers? For the standard- grilled over charcoal, only cracked pepper and minimal salt added. The taste of this is surprisingly good. Just trying to determine is they are any health bonuses.

Take the value of the recipe as if you used all ground beef...take away the hamburger & it's values that you aren't using and add in the values of the sunflower seeds. Make sense?
