# How many calories are produced when 1 gram of carbohydrate is oxidized? 1 gram of protein? 1 gram of fat? If you just ate 100 grams of food that was 20 percent protein, 30 percent carbohydrate, and 10 percent fat, how many kilocalories did you consume?

• 1 gram of carbohydrate creates 4 kilocalories (kcal) of energy when oxidized.
• When 1 gram of protein is oxidized, 4 kcal of energy is produced.
• When 1 gram of fat is oxidized, 9 kcal of energy is produced.

100 grams of this item contains roughly 290 kilocalories of energy.

### What is Calorie?

A calorie is a type of energy unit that is often used to indicate the amount of energy in food as well as the amount of energy expended while performing physical exercise. A calorie is defined as the amount of energy required to heat one gram of water by a degree Celsius at standard atmospheric pressure.

To get the total number of kilograms of energy consumed from 100 grams of food that contains 20% protein, 30% carbohydrate, and 10% fat, we must first calculate the contribution of every macronutrient and then add them together:

• Protein: 20% of 100 grams = 20 grams. 20 grams of protein x 4 kcal/gram = 80 kcal.
• Carbohydrate: 30% of 100 grams = 30 grams. 30 grams of carbohydrate x 4 kcal/gram = 120 kcal.
• Fat: 10% of 100 grams = 10 grams. 10 grams of fat x 9 kcal/gram = 90 kcal.

Adding these together, we get a total of:

80 kcal + 120 kcal + 90 kcal = 290 kcal.

Therefore, consuming 100 grams of this food would provide approximately 290 kilocalories of energy.
