    I have a packet of pasta and its 120g.

    It says on the bag that per 100g its 129 calories, which would mean about 140-150 per 120g which is the amount in the pack.

    However, it says next to it that per pack its 511 calories, this is confusing me.

    Anyone able to help?

    Is that cooked or dry weight? Obviously when it is cooked it is much heavier but the extra weight is all water. So I guess the 100g of cooked pasta is 129 cals while the 120g of dried is 511.

    I'm not sure, this is the table from the back of the pack.
