Carrot Calories – The Low Down! 

Have you ever asked the question, “how many calories in carrots?” Well here is a simple and easy answer.

Carrot Calories are really quite low. Carrots contain very little fat or protein and one medium raw carrot which is around 61g will contain 25 calories. 

Are the calories in cooked carrots and raw carrots the same? Well the answer is yes. Whilst the water content and nutrition may change the number of calories in a raw or cooked carrot is the same. 

Calories in baby carrots are a little different. One baby carrot is approximately 20 calories. 

The calories in 1 cup of carrots is 45 calories per cup.
