How to Convert Kilojoules to Kilocalories

Convert kilojoules to kilocalories with this simple formula:

kilocalories = kilojoules × 0.239006

Converting a kilojoule energy measurement to a kilocalorie measurement involves multiplying the energy by the conversion ratio to find the result. One kilojoule is equal to 0.239006 kilocalories, so to convert simply multiply by 0.239006.

For example:
5 kJ = (5 × 0.239006) = 1.195029 kcal
