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
