Moisture Loss vs Processing Loss

Q.  What is the difference between moisture loss and processing loss in Genesis.


A.  Moisture loss subtracts the percent or weight from the grams of moisture only.  So if your product contains 100 grams of water, and you apply a 10% moisture loss, the software will subtract 10 g from the weight of the water.  Applying a moisture loss can affect the nutritional content per serving.

A processing loss would be applied to account for loss like on the production line, where a percent of the total product is lost.  So if you have 100 lbs of product and you know that 1% is lost on the line, then you would apply a 1 lb or 1% loss.  The software would subtract 1 lb from the total weight of the recipe.
