How Much More Do Noodles Weigh After Cooking?

When cooked, dry pasta absorbs water and expands in weight by at least 100 percent, with certain types rising in weight by as much as 150 percent, depending on the kind (2 to 2.5 times the original weight). If you cook 50g (1.8oz) of dried pasta, the completed product will weigh between 100g and 150g, according to this formula (3.5-5.3oz).
