Nutritionists and food safety experts helped The Daily Beast rank mile-high foods on calorie counts and sanitation risks.
The calorie savings from cutting back on sugary foods are major.
There are no calorie counts for the parade of nutritional horribles (interspersed with a little fruit).
It doesn't matter, they say, whether that calorie comes from table sugar (sucrose) or HFCS.
All told, it takes 55 calories of fossil-fuel energy to get one calorie of beef.
The calorie nevertheless is not a food substance, it is the unit by which energy-giving heat is measured.
Why is it necessary to consider the calorie value of a ration?
On a 1200 calorie schedule arranged as I have it you will not be hungry, I assure you.
There is no apparent difference apart from the calorie amount.
The understanding of the value of a calorie is indispensable for the comprehension of nutrition.
1866, from French calorie, from Latin calor (genitive caloris) "heat," from PIE *kle-os-, suffixed form of root *kele- (1) "warm" (cf. Latin calidus "warm," calere "be hot;" Sanskrit carad- "harvest," literally "hot time;" Lithuanian silti "become warm," silus "August;" Old Norse hlær, Old English hleow "warm").
In scientific use, largely replaced 1950 by the joule. As a unit of energy, defined as "heat required to raise 1 gram of water 1 degree Celsius" (the small or gram calorie), but also as "heat required to raise 1 kilogram of water 1 degree Celsius" (the large calorie or kilocalorie).
calorie cal·o·rie (kāl'ə-rē)
A unit of energy-producing potential supplied by food and released upon oxidation by the body, equal to the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of water by 1°C at one atmosphere pressure. Also called nutritionist's calorie.
The unit of heat equal to the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of water by 1°C at 1 atmosphere pressure. Also called kilocalorie, kilogram calorie, large calorie.
Any of several approximately equal units of heat, each measured as the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1°C from a standard initial temperature at 1 atmosphere pressure. Also called gram calorie, small calorie.
The unit of heat equal to 1/100 the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water from 0 to 100°C at 1 atmosphere pressure. Also called mean calorie.
