Enter the calories per serving (kcal/serving) and the total weight of the serving (g) into the Caloric Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Caloric Density.

## Caloric Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Caloric Density.

Dc = C / W

• Where Dc is the Caloric Density (kcal/g)
• C is the calories per serving (kcal/serving)
• W is the total weight of one serving (g)

## How to Calculate Caloric Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Caloric Density.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the calories per serving (kcal/serving).
1. The calories per serving (kcal/serving) is given as: 100.
2. Next, determine the total weight of the serving (g).
1. The total weight of the serving (g) is provided as: 4.
3. Finally, calculate the Caloric Density using the equation above:

Dc = C / W

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

Dc = 100 / 4 = 25 (kcal/g)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

calories per serving (kcal/serving) = 600

total weight of the serving (g) = 20

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

Dc = C / W = ?
