Egg Noodle Dry to Cooked Weights
In this section, I’ll show you how much you can expect your dried noodle weight to increase once it’s cooked in water, for both fine and medium noodles, along with how to quickly calculate the increase for any portion.
Fine Noodle Dry to Cooked Weight
I did some research and testing of fine noodle weights before and after cooking in boiling water and found the following:
A 50g (1.76oz) portion of fine egg noodles absorbs cooking water and increases in weight by around 160% to 130-135g (4.6-4.8oz).
You can calculate any sized portion of fine noodle before and after cooking weight by performing the following calculation:
Dry fine noodle weight + 160% = cooked weight (when cooked in water).

I did some research and testing of medium noodle weights before and after cooking in boiling water and found the following:
A 50g (1.76oz) portion of medium egg noodles absorbs cooking water and increases in weight by around 125% to around 110-115g (3.88-4.1oz).
You can calculate any sized portion of medium noodle before and after cooking weight by performing the following calculation:
