Typical Caloric Density

The table on this page lists typical caloric density values for commonly used diet ingredients. In most cases, these values were calculated by applying the Atwater Values (4 kcal/gm for protein and carbohydrates, and 9 kcal/gm for fat) to data (on a “dry basis”) determined by Proximate Analysis (moisture, protein, fat, fiber, ash, and carbohydrate by difference).
