  1. I got a few packets of microwave rice to work out which one I wanted to buy in bulk. These weigh 250g and are basically precooked. The nutrition on the back of the packet for basmati rice suggests that one serving (half the pack, 125g) is 39g of carbs. However the content is precooked, water weighted rice. Usually cooked rice is 3x the weight of dry rice so should the nutrition listed be for like 30g of rice or something like that? In comparison I cooked up 100g of rice today and it weighed just over 400g when cooked, naturally if I eat it all, I record it at 100g, not 400g. The same should apply to the micro rice, or am I incorrect?
