Guide To Calories, Kilocalories and Kilojoules

Calories are units of energy. One calorie is usually defined as: the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of water by 1 degree Celsius. Calories are used to measure the energy content of food. But when energy values appear on food labels they are often listed as “kilocalories” (kcal). Another unit of food energy is the “joule”. One calorie equals 4,184 joules, while one kilojoule (kJ) equals 1,000 joules.
