    :confused: How many calories are in a satsuma?

    Various sources have listed 25, 35, 36, and even 50!

    It's very hard to count intake accurately when there is such conflicting information. How do you all manage it?

    if i find out different results i take the average of them and use it.......it is quite frustrating though.

    Could it depend upon how big the satsuma they based it on was....
    Like people...not all satsuma's conform to the same size and shape??!!
    :)I quite like the idea of a rebellious satsuma :)

    On a more serious note....If you want to play it safe and eat lots of them, I'd use the higher estimate :)

    Munkypoo....that thought of a rebellious satsuma is very funny!

    Size will be the main culprit - but when you are only talking about 25 calories - I don't think its worth bothering with - unless you are eating a barrow-load every day.

    I would take the average and count them around 35 calories.

    I tend to stick to the higher end of things when estimating calories.

    Let's say it's more likely to be between 25 and 35 since most sources list it around there... and what's ten calories, really?

    Trekkie, you!!!!
