    Rice Calories

    I bought big ass rice bag. Long-grain, enriched...blah blah...

    Well I look at the nutrients, and it says 150 calories 1/4 cup...now that must be a typo right? I looked on the net, and I could only find 1 cup of raw rice is like 675 calories, and cooked rice around 205 calories per 1 cup??? now, wtf? or my really stupid?

    if 1 cup raw rice = 675 calories, then maybe the rice you bought is a raw measurement. it makes sense.

    if 1 cup raw = 675 then 1/4 cup of that same rice = 169 calories. yours says 1/4 cup = 150

    pretty darn close

    The thing is mate....

    the 1 cup raw was 675 cals
    and the 1/4 raw was 150 cals

    it makes sense...but if I cook it, then its only going to be 205 cals per 1 cup???

    You know what Im saying?

    1 cup cooked rice is about equal to 1/4-1/2 cup uncooked rice. I know the rice I buy says that 1 cup uncooked equals 3 servings and each serving is 1 cup cooked rice.

    The calories don't go anywhere. The one cup of cooked rice you're eating is equal to about 2/5 cup of uncooked rice.
