Determine the amount of protein in a small potato that has a total of 96.0 kcal and contains 20.0 grams of carbohydrates and no fat

Answer:

Energy of carbohydrates per gram = 4 kcal
Thus, total energy provided by 20 g of carbohydrates = 20*4 = 80 kcal
Thus, energy of proteins = 96 - 80 = 16 kcal
Now, energy of protein per gram = 4 kacl per gram
Thus, amount of protein = total energy of protein/energy of protein per gram = 16/4 = 4 grams
