Excerpt from The Economy of Food: A Popular Treatise on Nutrition, Food and Diet

The interest is largely centered upon the pecuniary aspects of the subject. The prices quoted are, in most cases, those of London stores. They are, of course, liable to fluctuation; but they represent, as nearly as could be ascertained, the average prices prevailing in different parts of the country. All calculations in which prices are involved are explained in detail and the reader can therefore adjust any possible differences due to this cause.

In regard to the method of estimating the relative pecuniary values of foods which the author has ventured to propound in Chapter XIV, there may be room for some difference of opinion. The object might, perhaps, have been achieved by other means but most of the methods hitherto adopted have proved unsatisfactory to the class of reader chiefly concerned. The calculated results given in the tables will be found easily intelligible and convenient in form.
