The human energy need is measured in kilocalories (in kcal). The word “calorie” appeared from Latin and means “heat”. The certain energy value is intrinsic to each food stuff (see tables below). On the labels of the majority of food stuffs bought by us, their energy value is marked precisely in kcal. Calorific value is computed per a standard served portion. Our tables are easy for perception.
The table below shows calorie values for foods starting with Z.
|Zucchini raw||1/2 cup||0||9|
|Zucchini cooked, no fat added||1/2 cup||0||14|
|Zucchini breaded/battered, fried||1 slice||1||21|
