Calories are the amount of energy in foods and beverages, or the amount of energy you burn exercising.
Energy is measured in Kilocalories (kcal) and kilojoules (kJ). If you're counting calories or comparing the calorie contents of foods, this can cause confusion.
Calories can be small or large.
This means that 1 large calorie = 1,000 small calories, as 1 kg = 1,000 grams.
The term kilocalorie (kilo meaning 1,000) was created to refer to a large calorie. The term small calorie is only used in physics and chemistry research.
This means that with nutrition, the terms calories and kcal equal the same amount of energy (1 kilokalorie = 1 calorie in nutrition.)
One calorie (kcal) = 4.18 kJ
To convert from calories to kJ, multiply calories by 4.18.
For example, a medium-sized banana (118 grams) provides 105 calories (kcal). 105 x 4.18 = 439 kJ.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
