	#This function determines the specific level of a categorical variable with completely 
	#missing outcome data, given that the categorical variable is known to be missing outcome 
	#data for at least one level.  
	#
	#Args:
	#	yname: metabolite column name (character string)
	#   missing.levels.list: a list output by function anyMissingLevels indicating whether any levels
    #						 of categorical variables in the mixture model have entirely missing 
	#						 metabolite values (and therefore cannot be modelled).  
	#	dataset: a data frame containing metabolite levels and categorical variables 
	#
	#Returns:
	#	A list containing the specific levels of model categorical variables with 
	#	no metabolite data
