Q. Where can I find the calorie/carbohydrate count for cellophane noodles?

A. You can always find the nutritional information about any packaged food right on the wrapper in this country — it's required by law. But we can tell you're still on the fence about whether to actually pick up a package or even make the journey down to the supermarket to check it out before you buy, without knowing that it's going to be worth your while. Very prudent.

We think The Nutrition Bible (Canada, UK) is a great way to get around reading all those labels, since it provides nutritional information and fairly non-self-righteous commentary on more than 1,500 foods and drinks.

In the case of cellophane noodles, a cup of cooked noodles (about 6-3/4 ounces or 190 grams) has 160 calories and 39 grams of carbohydrate and not much of anything else.
