I bought a 500g pack of Tesco penne pasta recently – https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/254878482
As you can see on the website, it states that 100g of the pasta contains around 176 calories.
But after cooking the pasta, I noticed it weighed a lot more. I found that around 1/6 of the pack weighed around 225g instead of the 80 or so grams that I was expecting.
So when the packet states the nutritional information for 100g of the pasta, is it referring to cooked or uncooked pasta?
I imagine it is referring to 100g of cooked pasta... I'm hoping that's the case anyway, I want as many calories as possible.
