    Wonder if any of you could take a few minutes to answer these questions.
    Now if I weigh out 100grams of uncooked pasta and then cook it , how much in weight would the cooked pasta now weight.

    And the same for rice. If I cook 100grams of rice, how much would it weigh once I cooked it?
    Thanks guys

    For an accurate answer you would need to try it yourself but I think it will likely be three or four times the dry weight.

    Depends on how much water you use and how long you cook it for. The longer you cook it and the softer you have it, the more it will weigh as its soaked up more water.

    I always go by dry weights when cooking.
