Use a scale that measures in grams.

I think you're reading "g' as grains, when it's grams, but maybe I'm misunderstanding you.
Other than that.....what they said.

It says 45 G I think it means grams is a digital scale the only way to measure it?

So if a 8 ounce cup of rice equals 185 grams I would need about 5 ounces to be at about 135 grams of rice which will equal to 486 calories correct?

According to my scale, 135 grams of rice measures 3/4 cup.

That equals 180 per cup.
Maybe you're using a brown rice measuring cup instead of a white rice cup.
