The Inaccuracy of Bomb Calorimetry in Measuring Food Calories

Bomb calorimetry is a method of measuring the energy content of food by burning the sample and measuring the amount of heat released. Unfortunately, this technique is unreliable when used to measure the number of nutritional Calories in food, as it can consistently overestimate the Caloric content. A study conducted by Chen et al. (2020) compared the results of bomb calorimetry to the Atwater system, which is the standard method for measuring Calories in food, and found that bomb calorimetry consistently overestimated the Caloric content. The study suggested that this discrepancy can be attributed to the fact that bomb calorimetry does not take into account the energy of digestion and absorption that is lost from food during the metabolic process. This means that bomb calorimetry does not accurately measure the amount of energy that can actually be used by the body for fuel. Additionally, bomb calorimetry does not account for the complex chemical changes that occur during the digestive process, such as the breakdown of proteins, fats and carbohydrates into their respective building blocks. According to a study by Hussain et al. (2019), these changes are responsible for a significant portion of… Cont…
