I agree that it is dry. I also am pretty sure that there is a law that the nutrition information on a package has to be for the item as it is packaged. That is why if you look at a macaroni and cheese dinner for example (not that I recommend eating those...real cheese is so much better) it shows both as packaged and as prepared nutrition amounts. I could be wrong about it being a law though.

That's the amount of calories dry.

Does it also give measurement in grams (or ounces)?

My rice bag says "1/4 c (45 grams)" - and when i weighed out 1/4c of dry rice, it did indeed come up to 45 grams, confirming that the nutrition information was most definitely for dry.

Yeah 1/4 cup of COOKED rice would only be 50-60 calories, and sure is not very much at all.

Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

It's dry. I know 1 cup of cooked regular long grain rice is around 200 calories. 1/4 cup of dry rice would cook up to around 3/4 of a cup (varies each time due to water absorption, cooking time/method etc) so that would make sense that 1/4 cup of your uncooked rice 160 calories, because it would be around 3/4 of a cup once it's cooked. Plus, generally packages are for the "as-is" condition (ie uncooked), unless it specifies that the value is for cooked.
