The unit of measurement for energy is calories, there are actually two types of calories, one is used in chemistry and is more properly called the small calorie, the other is used in food and is more properly called the large calorie. A large calorie is "approximately the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water by one degree Celsius". The other way to measure energy is joules, and 1 calorie (large) is approximately 4.2 kilojoules.
