Kcal vs cal

Is there any way to switch from kcal to calories?


  • They tend to mean the same thing in context. Unless... you actually want every number to be 1000 times larger?


  • Hi Roublick2,

    We do not have a way to customize the kcal to display calories instead, at the moment.

    As @Vickie mentioned, a kilocalorie (kcal) is the metric version of the Calorie that we typically see on product labels here in North America. So 1 kcal = 1 Calorie.
