Was the 60 calories for a whole cup? That sounds like a fair amount of calories for a cup to me. Vegetables are very low in calories. 1/4 cup of Heinz Home Style Beef gravy in a jar is only 25 calories with 1g of fat. I hope you find your answer. Irene

First, remember that veggies are naturally low in calories, so that could very well be the correct. If you still think it is wrong, try entering the veggies you are using by weight rather than volume. You may have to do some searching to find the item in the list by weight, but I find it way more accurate. I use grams when ever possible.

I'm trying to calculate how many calories are actually in my homemade gravy. The calculator says 60, but that can't be right. After roasting several cups of vegetables (white, sweet potatoes, zucchini, onions, carrots) I mix it with vegetable broth and puree. One half cup serving has to be more than 60 calories because pureeing would have more vegetables than sliced vegetables. Help me figure this sucker out please emoticon
