ABSTRACT Dados sobre composição de alimentos são importantes para inúmeras atividades, porém são escassos ou inexistentes em nosso país. O presente trabalho teve como objetivo determinar o valor calórico dos alimentos de origem animal comumente usados na dieta: carne, leite e ovos a fim de compará-los com os dados das tabelas de composição centesimal mais utilizadas por profissionais da área. Observou-se que de um modo geral, ocorrem variações entre os valores das tabelas consultadas e os analisados, sendo estes menores para ovos, seguidos de laticínios, carnes suínas, carnes bovinas e aves. Salientamos portanto, a importãncia de obtenção dados sobre a composição de alimentos condizentes com diferenças regionais do Brasil, visto que a maioria das tabelas disponíveis são compilações de dados internacionais.

    ABSTRACT: The Enteral Nutrition Therapy (ENT) has been widely used in hospital and home care assistance. However, research works are needed to make this technique more efficient and cheaper. Objective: Evaluate the nutritional quality of handmade enteral diets used in a charity hospital in the Jequitinhonha Valley, Brazil, and propose qualitative and quantitative adjustments, when necessary, and compare the data available in tables of chemical composition of foods with the data achieved by laboratory analyses. Materials and methods: The study was carried out in partnership with a charity organization of the region and the Universidade Federal dos Vales do Jequitinhonha e Mucuri, where the collection of the handmade enteral diets was performed. The analyses of the physical-chemical and centesimal composition of 36 samples of diets were carried out in the laboratories of the university. Results: It was observed that the daily energy offer of the diets was below the recommended standards and presented a percentage distribution different from that estimated for patients receiving ENT. Besides, it can be seen that the nutrient values of the data achieved in laboratory do not agree with those available in tables of food chemical composition. Conclusions: Significant losses of nutrients were verified during the processing and preparation of handmade enteral diets. It challenges nutritionists to standardize these diets and corroborates the relevance of new studies to determine the nutritional content of handmade enteral diets, since these diets have been widely used in poor regions of Brazil and in other countries.

    ABSTRACT: Eighty six young bulls were used, divided into four genetic groups: Nellore (n=20), Canchim (n=17), ½ Canchim ×Nellore (NC) (n=25) and ¾ Canchim ×Nellore (TQ) (n=24). The animals were weighed every 28 days to evaluate the average daily gain (kg/day), dry matter intake (kg/day) and feed conversion. When the animals reached slaughter weight (450 kg) and fat thickness greater than 4 mm, were slaughtered to evaluate the rib eye area (cm2), subcutaneous fat thickness (mm), marbling, shear force, ether extract (%) and total cooking losses. The Nellore group fitted correctly into the proposed system, showing similar performance when compared to the CN group (1.18 and 1.29 kg/day for Nellore and CN, respectively) and feed conversion (6.90 and 7.04 for Nellore and CN, respectively). The dry matter intake (kg/day) differed among all groups (11.82, 9.39, 8.90 and 8.31 for Canchim, TQ, CN and Nellore, respectively). The carcass weight (kg) was higher in the Canchim group (291.14) than the other groups (250.74, 246.64 and 244.18 for TQ, CN and Nellore respectively). Although the carcass dressing percentage of the Nellore group (58.75%) was the highest, this group had the lowest yield of commercial cuts in the hindquarter especially for the sirloin (10.22, 11.55, 11.64 and 11.18% for Nellore, Canchim, TQ and CN, respectively). The shear force values indicated that the slaughter of young animals can assure tender beef regardless of the genetic group.
