The Carb Calculator is used to compute the number of calories in a food item selected by the user. It takes the name of the food item and its quantity as input and outputs the nutritional facts in it.

It also calculates all the macronutrients and the micronutrients in the specified food item.

The macronutrients include carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. The micronutrients include vitamins and mineralsThe calculator also gives the number of sterols, physical properties, and alcohol content in the food item. It also shows the highest nutrients present and the daily value ranking of the specific food item.

What Is a Carb Calculator?

The Carb Calculator is an online tool that is used to calculate the nutritional facts, the macronutrients and micronutrients, the daily value ranking, calories, and alcohol content of a specified food item.

The calculator also computes the physical properties, including mass, serving volume, and serving density. The calculator also calculates the sterol in the food, such as cholesterol.

How To Use the Carb Calculator

The user can use the Carb Calculator by following the steps given below.

Step 1

The calculator prompts “Create Your Own Nutritional Label” in its input window. The user must first enter the amount of the food item in the input tab of the calculator.

It should be entered in the block labeled “Amount.”

The amount of food should be entered in the unit of “cups.” For the default example, the amount used is one cup.

Step 2

The user must enter the food item’s name in the calculator’s input tab. It should be entered in the block titled “Ingredient.” The ingredient used is asparagus in the default example.

Step 3

The user must now press the “Submit” button for the calculator to process the amount and the food item.

Output

The calculator computes the output the in the thirteen windows given below.

Input Interpretation

The calculator interprets the input and displays it in this window. The default example displays the food item asparagus with the amount 1c, which is 1 cup.

Nutrition Facts

The calculator displays the nutritional chart for the food item in this window. The nutrition facts consist of the number of calories and the fat calories. It contains the total fat percentage in which there is saturated fat and trans fat. The number of grams of sodium and cholesterol is also displayed.

The calculator also displays the total number of grams of carbohydrates, which comprises dietary fiber and sugar. Proteins are also expressed in grams in this item.

The calculator also displays the daily percentage value for the macronutrients according to the 2000-calorie diet. Other nutritional facts include vitamins A, C, E, B6, calcium, phosphorous, zinc, iron, magnesium, thiamin, niacin, folate, and riboflavin. These macronutrients and micronutrients are displayed for the default example.

Daily Value Ranking

The Daily Value Ranking shows how much of the quantity of a food item is needed by a person to reach the daily value of the nutrients present in it.

The output window displays the daily percentage value for vitamin A, folate, iron, vitamin B12, and cholesterol for asparagus.

Highest Nutrients Compared To Other Foods

The calculator also displays the nutrients which are present in the highest amount in the particular food item.

For the default example, vitamin K, vitamin A, and vitamin E are present in the most significant amount of asparagus.

Vitamin A is 56 μg, vitamin A is 1013 IU and vitamin E is 1.5 mg. The % daily value for vitamins A and E is 20% and 8%, respectively.

Calories

A calorie is a unit of energy a person gains by burning a macro or a micronutrient in the body. The more calories in the food item, the more it will provide energy to a person’s body.

The calculator displays the total calories and the fat calories in this window.

For asparagus, the total calories are 27 cal, and the fat calories are 1.3 cal. The percent daily value for fat calories is 1%.

Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are organic compounds consisting of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. They are starch, sugars, and cellulose which the body breaks to release energy. The body breaks down carbohydrates into glucose, which is sugar that provides energy to all the organs and tissues.

For asparagus, the total carbohydrates present are 5.2 grams with a percent daily value of 2%. The dietary fibers and sugars are 2.8 g and 2.5 g, respectively. The percent daily value for dietary fiber is 11%.

Fats and Fatty Acids

Fat consists of fatty acid molecules that the body breaks during digestion so they can be absorbed in the blood. Saturated fats are fats with single bonds in the fatty acid molecules.

The calculator shows the total fat in asparagus to be 161 mg and saturated fat to be 54 mg. The percent daily value for both is 0%.

Protein and Amino Acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins joined by peptide bonds. Proteins are present in enzymes and antibodies. The calculator also gives the value for proteins for various food items.

The proteins in asparagus are 2.9 g with a percent daily value of 6%.

Vitamins

Vitamins are not found in the body but should be taken in smaller amounts for the proper functioning of the body. They are micronutrients and are essential for the growth of a person.

The calculator also displays the vitamins found in the food item.

For the default example, the asparagus contains 51 μg of vitamin A and 7.5 mg of vitamin C. The percent daily value for vitamin A and vitamin C are 3% and 13%, respectively.

Minerals

Minerals are micronutrients not found in the human body. They are inorganic compounds required in smaller quantities by the body.

Asparagus contains 32 mg calcium and 2.9 mg iron with percent daily values of 3% and 16%, respectively.

Sterols

Sterols are waxy solids that are unsaturated fatty alcohols. The sterol found in the human body is cholesterol. If a sterol is present in the food item, the calculator displays it.

For the default example, asparagus has 0 g cholesterol with a 0% daily value.

Alcohol Content

The calculator also displays the alcohol content in the food item selected by the user.

There is no alcohol content for asparagus, and the volume percentage, proof, and mass are all zero.

Physical Properties

The calculator also gives the physical properties of the chosen food item. The physical properties include mass, serving volume, and serving density.

For the default example, the mass of one cup of asparagus is 134 grams, the serving volume is 237 mL, and the serving density is 0.57 $g/cm^{3}$.

Solved Example

The following example is solved through the Carb Calculator.

Example 1

For a cup of broccoli, give the nutritional facts, including saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, sodium, total carbohydrates, dietary fibers, sugars, proteins, vitamins, minerals, sterols, and alcohol content present in it.

Also, provide the average daily value ranking and the average highest nutrients compared to other foods.

Give the total number of calories present in broccoli along with the fat calories.

Solution

The user must first enter “broccoli” in the block labeled, “Ingredient” in the calculator’s input window. The amount of broccoli given is one cup.

The user must enter “1 cup” against the block titled “Amount.”

After entering the ingredient and the amount, the user must now press the button “Submit” for the calculator to compute the nutritional chart for broccoli.

At first, the output shows the input interpretation window, which consists of the name of the ingredient “broccoli” and the amount “1c,” which is one cup.

The calculator shows the average nutrition facts in which the compounds are explained under the next headings.

The calculator shows the average daily value ranking for vitamin C, vitamin A, folate, saturated fat, and total fats to be 137%, 24%, 15%, 0%, and 0%, respectively. These are the % daily values.

The Average Highest Nutrients compared to the other foods include 82 mg of vitamin C, 91 μg of vitamin K and 1200 IU of vitamin A.

These distributions are from log nutrient values in standard servings of 7500 common foods.

The total number of calories in one cup of broccoli is 27 calories which is the mean value. The fat calories are 2.7 cal.

The total carbohydrates, dietary fibers, and sugars are 5.1 g, 2.3 g, and 1.5 g respectively. The total fat and saturated fats are 319 mg and 44 mg, respectively.

The protein present is 2.6 g with a percent daily value of 5%. There are 60 μg of vitamin A and 82 mg of vitamin C. The minerals include 43 mg of calcium and 743 μg of iron.

The cholesterol and alcohol content is 0 g. The mass of a cup of broccoli is 89 g, the serving volume is 237 mL, and the serving density is 0.38 $g/cm^{3}$.
