    how to measure rice?..before cook or after?


    this might seem like a dumb question but i've been trying to get hold of Calorie info for rice.

    I'm always seeing things such as 1 cup of rice has 53g carbs etc.

    When they say 1 cup, are they talking about the raw rice or the cooked rice (after it's absorbed a lot of the water and has increased in size by zillion times). and does anyone know how much a "Cup" refers to, in terms of grams or ounces.

    Cheers,

    Well if your going to measure for eating I would go with cooked rice size. So I would think it is 1 cup of brown rice has 32g of carbs.

    I think you can search on calorieking or livestrong sites for the nutritional info on stuff.

    Yes they are all correct. The calorie count on the box/bag of rice is going to say how many calories per cooked serving (ususally 1/2 - 3/4 cup) and 1 cup is 8 ounces

    Better be brown rice! ha Cheers!

    100g of RAW rice contains 70g of carbs.
    100g = 4oz.
