If its just salt and water, its not going to add calories, but will certainly add salt.
If it has sugar in as well, its going to add some calories, I don't honestly know how you would calculate this though!

I never like to condradict what people write but in this case, from the research I did because We brined too, i was told that bring can add up to 1600mg of sidium. It depends on how much of product is exposed and how much salt is used. Just remember on a general note that your turkey wont absorb more that the brone solution. Once it is reached the same sodium level from absorption, it just quits. So time can also play a factor.
If your really worried, we inject our turkey therefore are able to know how much we put in it. This has worked wonderfully!
I have been brining the Thanksgiving turkey every year for probably 5 years and the family loves it! I was wondering if I should calculate extra calories for the brine that soaks into the meat. An y ideas?
