While watching a collection of olive oil based chicken marinade recipes I was wondering if there is an effective way of calculating the effect that a marinade might have on the nutritional value of meat being marinaded? While I am principally interested in 'calories' I would also like to, for instance, be able to calculate differences in fats and/or carbs. I am not so interested (at the moment) about vitamins or minerals.
The tools I have seen simply aggregate the total of ingredients, but in a marinade many of those ingredients are left behind (and therefore should not count as calories for the dish) but I have to believe (and other articles suggest as much) that there is 'an effect' but I am yet to find a manner for calculating that effect.
Several answers to How to calculate the calorie content of cooked food? dance around the question, and as @Bikerboy389 suggests, maybe I'm "sweating the small stuff" here...still I would like to know. Especially where oils are concerned I'm thinking the effect might be more than just 'a little'
