Please get your units right, you should be writing "kilocalories" where you write "calories" (or do it even better and use Joules)

You are right in thinking that the calories values presented are in fact kilocalories. We use the term Calories as this tends to be the term most people are familiar with. That said, we are aware that in Europe kcal is most widely used. Sorry for the confusion.
