Nutrition Calculation Problems (Chapter 1) Problems explained and worked out in detail on the next page 1) A serving of graham crackers has 30 grams of carbohydrates, 10 grams of fat, and 2 grams of protein. How many calories does a single serving of graham crackers have? 2) With the same graham crackers, calculate the amount of calories in the whole box. There are 5 servings per container 3) With the same graham crackers, calculate the calories from carbohydrates only. 1) A serving of graham crackers has 30 grams of carbohydrates, 10 grams of fat, and 2 grams of protein. How many calories does a single serving of graham crackers have? - On a food label you will have to look for the fats, carbs, and proteins, because those are the macronutrients, which determine calories. - Make sure that you know how much energy each of these macronutrients yields  Carbohydrates yield 4 kcal/gram  Proteins yield 4 kcal/gram  Fats yield 9 kcal/gram - What you do to solve problems like these is multiply the macro nutrients in the problem by the amount of energy they yield  30 grams of carbohydrates ×4 kcal/gram: 120 kcal  10 grams of fats ×9 kcal/gram: 90 kcal  2 grams of protein ×4 kcal/gram: 8 kcal - Then you add the end results of the macronutrient calories together  120 kcal + 90 kcal + 8kcal = 218 kcal - So, in one serving there are 218 kcal (calories) 2) With the same graham crackers, calculate the amount of calories in the whole box. There are 5 servings per container - So basically with this, if you want the amount of calories of the whole, you just multiply the amount of calories in one serving by the amount in the package  218 kcal in one serving  5 servings per container  218 kcal × 5 servings = 1090 kcal in the WHOLE box 3) With the same graham crackers, calculate the calories from carbohydrates in one serving. - For this you just simply multiply the amount of carbohydrates in the one serving by the amount of energy carbohydrates yield - 30 grams of carbohydrates × 4 kcal/gram = 120 kcal of carbohydrates
