## Calorie

1. A calorie is the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of a gram of water by 1°C. A Calorie (kilocalorie) is 1000 calories.
2. (cal) A measure of heat energy representing the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature 1 g of water by 1°C. Also called “small calorie”: 1000 cal = 1 kcal or Cal. See joule, kilocalorie.
3. A calorie (c) is the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1°C. A Calorie (C) is a kilocalorie, or 1000 calories (c). The energy content of foods is usually given in Calories (kilocalories).
