Default HELP! How many calories in a lb of pinto beans?



Advertise Here

I've been working under the belief that a pound of pinto beans gives 1500 calories.

I read this on a survivalist forum. I also did a search here and found the same info. A little searching and I find the same 1500 calories per pound info allover the web on survivalist sites.

BUT
The USDA says different.
http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/index.html
Beans, pinto, mature seeds, cooked, boiled, without salt

Calories per cup 245
Grams per cup 177
ounces per cup 6 (177 gram = 6 ounces)
giving 2.66 cups per lb (16 / 6 = 2.66)

2.66 X 245 = 653 calories per lb.


Am I confused? Can someone check my math?

Try going by weight for raw beans, which is what you'd be storing. 1 pound is 453 grams. If you plug 4.53 into their website it calculates 453 grams worth of beans for you to be 1572 calories.

Slapping forehead with palm.

Their weights are for cooked beans. Which are much heavier due to the water in them.

Thanks for straightening me out vigilant.

This site says to multiply the weight of dry beans by 2.5 to get the weight after dehydration.

Yeah that's better.

for 1500 calories you need 1 pound of rehydrate beans.

16/2.5 = 6.4

so 6.4 ounces of dried beans is 1500 calories.
