Hey everyone. I hate fitday, but once in a while when I can't find the nutritional makeup of something I attempt to find it there (although I don't trust their readings, but it gives me an idea.) I was looking for certain fruits, and the word ''yields'' comes up a lot like 1 oz raw, yields. What does yields mean? Thank you

Well, more like "gives" or "provides".

For example,

Na+ (Sodium) + Cl- (chlorine) yields NaCl (aq.)

A piece of chicken will "yield" 20 grams of protein.

I take it to mean "what's left after you peel/de-seed/core/prepare it."
