Protein contents of chicken based food items are 23±4 g%, burger 16±6 g%, pizza 18±8 g%, satay 41±1 g% and murtabak 7±1 g%. Calorific values of these products are 295±56 Kcal/100g (chicken based product), 260±19 Kcal/100g (burger), 251±47 Kcal/100g (pizza), 221±5 Kcal/100g (satay) and 189±23 Kcal/100g (murtabak).
