Detailed background data
It has been assumed that the food processing industry is located in Denmark. Ingredients list from actual product (Danish Crown Foods 2020). Pepper content is 7% of ingredient mass, this input is increased to account for losses during peeling according to Christian Chefs International (2020). Rapeseed oil input estimated as total fat in product minus saturated fat in product. Egg white is assumed to be used dried; its content is estimated assuming that all protein in the product comes from this ingredient, which contains 79% protein in wet weight. Salt and sugar directly obtained from the nutritional composition. As gelling agents only xanthan gum considered, estimated assuming that it equals the carbohydrate content minus sugars. Other minor ingredients are neglected and the balance for wet weight is accomplished with tap water. Manufacturing is approximated as pork sausage production from Davis and Sonesson (2008). Retail is modelled assuming the following storage: Cooled. See more details as well as literature references in the methodoly report on: www.denstoreklimadatabase.dk.
Data on inputs and outputs of the food processing industry is modelled using: Danish Crown Foods (2020); Davis and Sonesson (2008); Christian Chefs International (2020).
