      What is the difference between calories and kilo calories?
      Examples – calories requirement of teenage girl is 1600 calories but the calories content written on a biscuit packet is 435 kilo calories.

      calorie and kilo calorie both are unit of energy. small amount is measured in calorie but large amount of energy measured in kcal. One large kilocalorie (kcal) is the equivalent of 1,000 small calories.
