Yes, calorie is the unit of measurement of energy in our food. I bet you didn’t know there was an adjective for that!
Calorifacient [kuh-lawr-uh-fey-shuhnt] (adj.):
(of foods) producing heat.

Saved as a favorite, I love your site!
Thank you! Come back for a visit soon 🙂
I am thoroughly conversant with my dictionary; I already knew the word calorifacient. A simpler adjective related to calory is calorific, though it’s not synonymous with calorifacient.
Good to know 🙂 thank you.
Excellent! Maybe not one I’ll use often, but nice to know it’s there!
are you a nutritionist, or just somehow aware? I am cooking with a serrano (sp?) pepper tonight.
Not annutritionist 🙂 have a nice dinner!

Now if only I can find my old professor and impress him with a sentence using it…
If only one could go back in time… 🙂 🙂
