Google vs. Chowhound: Anyone got spring roll wrappers on hand?

Hate to dumb the boards down with a calorie question, but trying to Google the nutritional info for a large rice wrapper, I'm getting every answer from 58 calories to 238. That's a huge difference. I'd just go to the store and look at a package, but I'm in a time bind, so I figured, *surely* there's some trusty hound who knows the answer off the top of his/her head.

Thanks!

  1. Whoof, that's a huge difference. I don't have the exact answer, but it only makes sense that it would be along the lines of any other extremely thin wrappery kinda thing made with any grain or rice flour...I'm thinking around 80 or so, per. Probably even less.

      Don't have them in front of me, but I think mc's ballpark sounds about right.

    2. The spring roll wrappers that you soften in water? If so, the ones I have for 100g say this on the package, svgs = 3.4 per package, Net weight 12 oz./340g.

      Cals = 337
      Fat = 0
      Carbs = 84g
      Protein = 1g

      1. Can you do math with not enough info? I have a package that says 280 cals per serving. Serving size 85 grams. Total package weight says 12 oz. Servings per package 4.5. How many wrappers per package? I don't know. I've got 12 left but I've used a few. So maybe 16 or 18? Sorry, may not be much help, but clearly there are several wrappers in a 280 cal serving.

          Guys, this is totally helpful—thanks!

          Although I will never understand why brands don't use the same weight measurements across the board. If the package is 12 oz., the serving size should be in oz.! Is it deliberate obfuscation, I've always wondered?

          Oh, PS: L.N., are those large (8 in. or 10 in.)?

            Had to find a measure tape! 8.5 inches.

            Agree about the weights. It's like one person does the front label, another does the back.

        2. Boy! These number really are all over the map, aren't they?

          My spring roll wrappers say that one 13 gram piece is one serving and that that one serving is 35 calories.

            Not too far off from my package. If you break a serving down by grams, 13 grams would be about 42 calories.

              Math was never my strong suit. :-)

                Well, these labels don't make it easy!

          2. somewhere between 80 & 90 calories per oz.
