Calorías y grasa por porción

Toggle: English / Spanish

Las calorías son la unidad básica de energía en los alimentos. Al comer, el cuerpo convierte las calorías en energía, utiliza lo que puede y almacena el resto en forma de grasa. Una caloría es una caloría, ya sea que provenga de un bizcocho de chocolate o una porción de brócoli crudo. La diferencia entre ellos es el número de calorías, grasa y otros ingredientes en una porción particular.
