    The difference here actually comes down to the difference between Calories and calories (one capitalized). A calorie is the amount of energy needed to raise 1 gram of water by 1 degree celsius. A Calorie is the amount of energy needed to raise 1 Kg of water by 1 degree celsius. So, 1,000 calories is equal to 1 kCal, or kiloCalorie. Confusing, I know.

    That being said, one is not healthier that the other. They are simply different ways of expressing the same concept.
