    How much calories in 1cup of dry oatmeal cooked. NOT ADDING UP.

    Hey guys,

    I've been cooking 1cup of Quaker rolled oats in the morning. The package says:

    Serving Size: 1/2 cup

    Amount Per Serving
    Calories: 150


    That means 1cup of dry oats cooked would = 300 calories.

    I wanted to make sure it was accurate so I cooked the oats and weighed them. Google is saying "there is 237 calories in 348g of oatmeal"

    WTF

    Weigh, count, measure DRY. How much (or little) water is in your oatmeal will impact wet weight without impacting calories.

    Dry oats need to be weighed prior to cooking. After cooking they absorb a lot of fluid and thus the total calories per gram goes down a lot. Always trust the nutrition label (in general).

    I don't see how these questions about cooked vs raw food still come up.

    What do you think happens to the water you add?

    Because "oatmeal" is not always the same as oats + water. The measurements may be different. The "oatmeal" recipe may be made with milk instead of water, or already have salt/sugar/butter mixed in.

    I thought all the water they absorb would make the weight go up.

    Yes! Have trust in the label :-) I was just surprised one cup was 300c didn't feel like it.

    The weight does go up and thus the energy density (kcal/gram) goes down as water has no kcal.
