Calorie counts are everywhere. They appear on restaurant menus, milk cartons and bags of baby carrots. Grocery stores display stacks of foods packaged with bright and colorful “low-calorie” claims. Calories aren’t an ingredient of your food. But they’re key to understanding what you are eating.
A calorie is the measure of stored energy in something — energy that can be released (as heat) when burned. A cup of frozen peas has a very different temperature than a cup of cooked peas. But both should contain the same number of calories (or stored energy).
