Sorry, I know this question has probably been asked a billion times - but does anyone know the calories in 1/2 cup of dry, uncooked porridge oats? Is it 150 calories?
thanks very much
Yes. You can look up any foods on the search engine btw.
1/2 cup of dry oats (40 grams) is 150 calories.
I typed oats into the search engine and this is what I got. Take your pick
40 grams is about 150. Unfortunately 1/2 cup usually turns out to be over 50 grams when I just measure it with a cup.
thanks guys. i tried using the search engine, but all i got was some oatmeal at starbucks and au bon pain! I will try to play around with it...!
Also, that is quite worrying about the gram/volume measurements. I live in the UK, so they only list calories per grams - but I am from the US so I find it much easier to use cup/half-cup type measurements -- it's very difficult to eye-ball 40 grams. But probably the best thing I can do is invest in a very accurate kitchen scale!
