Question regarding Basmati rice calories

4 months ago

My brand of Basmati rice is called Maman.

The nutrition facts label on the zipper bag that the rice is contained in says that the serving size is 1/4 cup (45 grams) which are 160 calories.

Today I cooked 4 cups.

Before I ate I weighed the rice on my food scale. It came to 450 grams. I ate all the rice.

Does this mean I gained 1,600 calories? That's what my math tells me. I just want to make sure.

Please let me know if you know for sure.
