## 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)

To calculate the caloric density, divide the calories per service by the weight per serving.

## How to Calculate Caloric Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Caloric Density.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the calories per serving (kcal/serving).
- The calories per serving (kcal/serving) is given as: 100.

- Next, determine the total weight of the serving (g).
- The total weight of the serving (g) is provided as: 4.

- 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** = ?**
