Calories from Fat

Calories from Fat are not additional calories, but are fat’s contribution to the total number of calories in one serving of the food. The Nutrition Facts Label lists the calories from fat because fat has more than twice the number of calories per gram than carbohydrate or protein.

For example, if the Nutrition Facts Label says one serving of food contains 150 calories and 100 calories from fat, the remaining 50 calories comes from carbohydrate, protein, and/or alcohol.
