First things first, what is a calorie? A calorie is simply a unit of energy. 1 calorie is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree Celsius. The amount of energy or calories in a given food is determined by using a device called a Bomb Calorimeter. Inside the Bomb Calorimeter, a unit of food is placed into a small oxygen rich chamber. Water surrounds the small chamber inside a tank. The unit of food is then burned, which in turn raises the temperature of the water. Based on the rise in temperature of the water, the number of calories, or the proposed energy contained in that unit of food is determined. There are several major flaws with this system itself and when comparing how the human body produces energy.
