Is the serving size on food labels, rice and oats for example, susposed to be cooked or dry measurements?

Thanks alot.....

I am almost positive that the serving size on oas and rice is when the food is dry. I think that the label will tell you whether they are referring to it as "dry" or "cooked".

dry weight as you can rehydrate the portion to your personal proportions.

Oats and rice are dry measurements. If you look in a nutritional counts book they will often give you a cooked value as well.

I use the NutriBase Desk Referance Guide by Dr. Art Ulene.
