I need help understanding how calories are calculated for navy beans (and other beans).
Navy beans raw - show 70 calories per cup.
Navy beans boiled, without salt, show about 255 calories per cup.
Why is there a difference? Does anyone eat these completely raw???
When I use them in a recipe, I measure them raw. I need to know how to convert the calories I enter in recipes from raw to cooked values.
If I put a cup of them in soup, I have no idea how much cooked navy beans I have from that raw cup - because there other ingredients in the soup.
Has anyone done this?
