What calories are?

In terms of diet, calories are a measure of the amount of energy you get from food or drink. In these cases, the term “calories” is usually used as an abbreviated version of kilocalories. You will find this written as kcal on food and beverage labels.

Kilojoules (kJ) are equivalent to kilocalories within the International System of Units, so you will also find them on the nutrition label. Approximately 1kcal equals 4.2kJ.
