How Much Does a Croissant Weigh? (In Charts)

The croissant is one of our most loved pastries and is popular in many countries across the globe in various styles, sizes, and flavors.

In this article, I’ve put together the weights and calories of many sizes and brands to help you find the information you need.

Weight and Calories of a Standard-Sized Croissant

A standard-sized croissant is the type that is usually sold as part of a multipack or a supermarket’s own brand croissant.

Regular multipack pastries tend to be on the smaller size and not always ‘all butter’ (although some are).

The average weight of a standard-sized or multipack croissant is 40-60g (1.4-2.1oz) and the calorie content of a croissant of this size is around 160-180kcal per pastry. An ‘all butter’ croissant is usually higher in calories than a pastry containing a butter substitute.

The table below shows the conversion weights for a standard-sized croissant

Pounds0.09-0.13lb

Weight and Calories of a Large Croissant

A large croissant is the luxury all-butter type pasty which you can buy in supermarkets or that you’ll find in a good quality bakery.

An average large butter croissant weighs around 60-80g (1.14-2.1oz) and the calorie content of a croissant this size is around 260-280kcal per pastry.

The table below shows the weight conversions for a large croissant:
