Calorie vs. calorie
Hi, Milkmen and Milkmaidens
Have to do a calorie count for a product label?
Here in South Africa we use kiloJoules and the conversionfactor to get that to Calories is to devide by 4.2.
Thus 100 Cal amount to 420 kJ.
Check this difference though: calorie is the energy it takes to heat one gram of water one degree Celsius, and a Calorie(used in Food Industry) is actually a kiloCalorie(1000 Cal.) that has no relation to a calorie. :-), but is equal to 4.2 kJ.
Got it all figured,
