Weight per calorie

I’ll be running a long ultrarun in 2017. It is a multi day self sufficient race. It is 250 km’s trhough the Sahara in 7 days. I need to bring all my food for the whole trip myself. So I’m looking for some specs about the food. What is the weight per calorie? Pure fat is around 9 kcal per gram, carbs is around 3.5 kcal per gram. So what is the number of kcal per gram ■■■■■■■?

Thanks for the reply!

A bag of normal jimmyjoy-plennyshake (not the Sports variant) contains 520 grams of jimmyjoy-plennyshake and contains 2119 kcals per bag. 2119 / 520 gives us about 4.075 kcals per gram. However, I did not take the water, bottle and bag into account…

Clarified a sentence a bit.

There are 3.92 kcals per gram in a bag of jimmyjoy-plennyshake Sports.
You’ll be able to find the nutritional information of the normal variant here, and the sports variant here.
