What foods are high in energy density?

'Energy density' is the amount of energy (or calories) per gram of food. Lower energy density foods provide fewer calories per gram of food – this means that you can have satisfying portions of these foods with a relatively low calorie content.

Consequently, what is the most energy dense nutrient?

Carbohydrates, protein, and fats are the three types of macronutrients, and foods and beverages contain varying amounts of these nutrients. The energy-density of food refers to the number of calories in a certain quantity. Fat is the most energy-dense macronutrient found in foods.
