    I am almost positive that the serving size on oas and rice is when the food is dry. I think that the label will tell you whether they are referring to it as "dry" or "cooked".

    Oats and rice are dry measurements. If you look in a nutritional counts book they will often give you a cooked value as well.

    I use the NutriBase Desk Referance Guide by Dr. Art Ulene.
