THE CALORIE VALUE -

  1. The amount of heat liberated from complete combusion of 1gm food in a bomb caloriemeter (a closed metal chamber filled with O ) is its gross calorific or gross energy value.
  2. The actual amount of energy liberated in the human body due to combustion of 1gm food is the physiological value.
  3. Gross calorific value of Carbohydrate, Protein, Fat are 4.1 K cal/gm, 5.65 Kcal/gm & 9.45 Kcal/gm respectively.
  4. Physiological values are 4.0 Kcal/gm, 4 Kcal/gm & 9 Kcal/gm respectively.
