calories in quinoa

Hey, does anyone know for sure how many calories are in cooked quinoa? Any quantity is fine, I can do the math. All the websites I've seen are using the same numbers, e.g. 160 calories per 1/4 cup, but some sites say that is for 1/4 cup COOKED and some say it's 1/4 cup UNCOOKED. Cooking increases the volume 2.5 to 3 times, so it makes a big difference. Any definitive answers?
