Like others have said, the 1/4 cup dry is more than 1/4 cooked. One thing that I do for prepackaged food is look at the number of helpings in the "bag" and then divide the final cooked amount into that number of helpings. For example, if the label said that a serving is 1/4 cup and there are three servings in the bag, I would weigh the rice after cooking and divide the weight by 3 to get the weight of one serving. Also, look at the web site provided by the product. They will often tell you that x amount dry is y amount cooked.
