Re: [GreenYes] BTU value of food
I put in a call to the NY and NJ offices of William Cosulich and Associates
and asked about this study. Nobody could tell me about it but I got an email
address and made a query.   So, we'll see what comes of it. I am quite
interested in having this piece of info on hand, for no other reason than it
is just good to know.
