Calorie vs. Kilocalorie[edit]

According to the article, a calorie is the energy req'd to raise the tempera ture of one gram of water one degree celsius. This is true, however the food Calorie (note capitalization), or Kilocalorie, is the unit for measuring food energy content. One gram of fat contains 9 Kilocalories of energy, not nine calories. I will go ahead and make the changes to the article. :) 00:17, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

From Wikipedia's own article on Calorie:
A convention of capitalising "Calorie" to refer to the kilogram calorie, with uncapitalised "calorie" referring to the gram calorie, is sometimes proposed, but neither recognized in any official standards, nor commonly followed.
Perhaps we could explain this in the article somehow (parenthetical?). At any rate, liter should definitely not be capitalized. - Jhinman 00:23, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Actually, I don't see any reason why we need to explain the definition of calorie here at all; the use of the calories when relating to food is well-understood. I removed the explanation, and instead linked to the Calorie article. - Jhinman 00:29, 13 January 2007 (UTC)


That quote from Hippocrates is completely unnecessary and has nothing to do with the article at hand.-DMCer 08:43, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Yep. I removed it. Lloydic (talk) 20:07, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Removed some stuff[edit]

I shortened the section on energy drinks as it was mostly uncited claims of energy bar and drink manufactures, e.g. "Energy bars provide a massive amount of fuel..." I will probably do the same with the "Nutrition facts" section if no one objects. --Suffusion of Yellow (talk) 09:35, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
