Understanding Kilojoules (kJ)
- We get energy from almost all food and drink. The energy is measured by the number of kJ (kilojoules) the food or drink provides. Energy used for daily activity is also measured in kJ. It can also be measured in Calories (1 Calorie is equal to 4.2kJ).
- Maintaining a healthy weight means balancing how many kJ we eat and drink with the energy we use. How many kJ each person needs each day differs from person to person. Some food and drinks have more kJ and others have fewer kJ. The differences result from different ingredients, preparation methods and serving sizes.
- The average daily energy intake for an Australian adult is 8700kJ. It’s the total intake of energy from all food and drinks consumed for a whole day, on average. Some people need less than this and others need more, depending on whether they are male or female, their regular activity level, age, size and genetics.
- We can use the average daily energy intake to help decide how many kJ we will consume each time we eat and drink throughout the day.
- If we have more kJ at one meal, we might have to have fewer kJ at another meal that day, or exercise for longer.
Why We Love Chicken
Chicken plays an important role in the Australian diet. It is a major source of protein, containing all nine essential amino acids. One 100g serving of chicken provides more than a third of the recommended daily intake (DI) of protein#.
Aside from that, chicken tastes great, particularly at KFC where it is freshly prepared by our trained cooks in every restaurant. Did you know:
- We source our chickens from well-known Australian suppliers like Inghams, Steggles, and Golden Farms.
- Most KFC chicken pieces and breast fillets are delivered fresh not frozen and are prepared in our restaurant by our trained cooks.

#Daily intakes are based on an average adult diet of 8700kJ. Your daily intakes may be higher or lower depending on your energy needs.
Keep It Balanced
A healthy diet is a balanced diet. Different foods contain different nutrients. So to get everything you need, you should eat a variety of foods.
Of course there’s a limit to how much you can eat in total. If you go over that limit, then you’ll put on weight. So you need to balance WHAT you eat with HOW MUCH you eat.
Knowing how many kilojoules (kJ) are in the food and drink we consume helps us achieve balance and maintain a healthy weight.
You should enjoy foods from the major five food groups daily:
- Breads and cereals: At KFC, our chicken is breaded with Australian flour, and our burger buns and dinner rolls are delivered fresh to each restaurant.
- Vegetables and legumes: KFC sources Australian grown lettuce and tomatoes for all of our burgers and meals.
- Dairy: The whole milk cheese KFC uses in our burgers is provided from Australia’s leading cheese makers.
- Lean chicken, meat and fish: KFC’s high quality chicken is provided directly from Australia’s leading suppliers.
- Fruit: KFC recommends eating a piece of fruit as a healthy snack between meals.
The Choice Is Yours
With the right choices, KFC’s great tasting food can easily fit into a healthy lifestyle as an occasional treat.
Reducing the kJ we eat and drink every day, or doing more exercise every day, can make a difference. For example, reducing the kJ we eat and drink by just 100kJ every day, or burning up an extra 100kJ through exercise every day, can mean that you lose 1kg of body fat after a single year!
As well as doing exercise, you can also try these simple tips when you come into KFC:
- Choose potato and gravy or coleslaw instead of chips.
- Ask for no mayonnaise on your burger.
- Try water instead of a soft drink.
- If you do choose a soft drink, consider those that have no sugar such as Pepsi Max.
KFC is commited to providing you with the information you need to make the right choices for yourself and your family.
