Calories in flour - is this right?
I feel like a retard, but this seems nuts. I'm trying to figure out calories in a recipie, and it calls for 1 cup of flour. The package says 2 tbsp = 100 calories. So here's my calculations:
2 tbsp = 100 cal
16 tbsp in a cup
so....800 calories in 1 cup of flour?
By similar reasoning, there's 1120 calories in 1/3 of a cup of margarine.
These numbers seem huge - I can maybe see the margarine, since it's all fat, but the flour seems crazy. In comparison, 1 cup of quick cooking oats is only 300 calories.
So, am I doing this correctly? Will I ever bake again? I doubt it if these number are right!

A cup of flour weighs less than a cup of water - about half. Your calculations are generally correct for most things but don't take into account that whole mass/volume thing that I haven't studied in 20 years. Anyway, your cup of flour is most likely 400-450 cals.

Hmmm, the flour I have here at home (all purpose flour) is 62 cals per tablespoon. Which makes it 455 calories per cup. You must have some HEARTY flour on hand!
I'm not sure I get your "reasoning" about margarine. Most margarines and butters are roughly 100 calories per tablespoon. 1/3 of a cup is 2.6 oz or 5.3 tablespoons which is 530 calories. There is nothing wrong with baking-just don't eat the entire thing of whatever you are making!

12:52 - she says 2 tbsp = 100 calories. So 2 tbsp of your flour is 124 calories.

This is the OP - I misread my margarine container - I figure about 560 calories per 1/3 cup...sorry!

measure by weight, not volume
1 cup of flour is about 4 3/8 ounces
Average flour has about 100 calories per ounce, so 1 cup is about 440 calories.

This is the OP - so should I always figure out calories by weight and not by volume? I've generally been doing it by volume because it's so much easier, but I'm starting to see that this may not be the best way to go....

With the Super Bowl and Sochi Olympics rapidly approaching, gangsters are seeing dollar signs
Wholesale Jerseys 2016
.Sophisticated crime rings are developing pop-up e-marketplaces and sourcing cheap apparel from abroad, readying to profit millions of dollars selling counterfeit goods to unsuspecting deal hunters
Stitched NFL Patch
.More than $17 million worth of Super Bowl 2013 merchandise -- from fake jerseys, hats and jackets to tickets and other souvenirs -- was seized last year, according to U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement.
While the NFL has forced the shutdown of more than 2,500 websites offering counterfeit team merchandise
, the federal government arrested a dozen people ahead of this year's Super Bowl and the Sochi Organizing Committee pledged to implement a more effective response to the theft of licensed Olympic gear
Winnipeg Blue Bombers Jersey
, the hill is steep.Without further consumer awareness, defeat is like a large-scale game of whack-a-mole, said David Sugden, an attorney specializing in grey markets at Call & Jensen.“Whenever there’s demand for anything --whether it is sports memorabilia or airplane parts -- you’re going to find there’s an effort from dishonest entrepreneurs to sell dishonest products,” he said.Brands may succeed in shutting down one
Atlanta Falcons Jersey
, but two more are always waiting in the wings.Traditional crime rings are attracted to the ease of importing apparel over, say, drugs and narcotics, and can quickly develop a website for the sale of illicit merchandise
Baltimore ravens Jersey
. The sites can also be written in such a way that the actual ring leaders are difficult to prosecute.
And it's extremely lucrative
Indianapolis Colts Jersey
. Despite the fact that some of these counterfeited products are indeed far superior to their legitimate counterparts, thieves oftentimes price them in the same ballpark so as to maintain the ruse that the products being purchased are real
Buffalo Bills Jersey
.“It allows you to maintain the margins of legitimate goods, making it an extremely attractive business with a very low barrier to entry,” said Fred Feldman, chief marketing officer of brand protection firm MarkMonitor
Chicago Bears Jersey
, which works with the NFL.It’s also easier to fool a shopper online, whereas consumers tend to be more cautious of a random man selling t-shirts out of the back of his truck in the rear of the stadium parking lot.
“Prior to Internet commerce
Cincinnati Bengals Jersey
, counterfeiters were often outside of stadiums or in flea markets or just on city streets,” said Sugden. “That kind of environment suggests to a reasonable consumer that this stuff probably is not authentic.”
Of course, some shoppers looking for
Cleveland Browns Jersey
a deal are willing to sacrifice the quality. In fact, a MarkMonitor survey from 2012 found that these deal hunters are 20 times more likely to buy counterfeit than regular consumers.
“Consumers have become more price sensitive and understand that one of the powers of the Internet is to compare and contrast prices to find the best deal
,” Feldman said.
With millions of revenue on the line, that has become a nightmare for brand owners.
