Help with conversions

Postby Aquagirl » Thu Jan 25, 2007 3:38 pm

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone could help me with a conversion.

I have been looking at the nutrition panels on foods and in particular the carbs level per 100grams. What I want to know is how do I convert this to mls? Is 100grams equal to 100mls?

Is this something I should know? Am I a dummy? Maybe I should have more attention at school. I have never paid attention to the nutrition panels before.

Thanks!!!

i think it depends on the product, 100mls of custard would weigh a different ammount to 100mls of water

Jewles is right. 100g of water = 100mls of water but it is not always the case for everything. You can weigh out your grams on scales and weigh out mls in a measuring cup don't know if that will help.

Yeah I have issues with this too!!! It's soo frustrating cos with like Lite Sour Cream, some of the brands measure in mL's and some in grams!! So trying to compare them just doesn't work! GRR!

You'd have to measure out 100mL, weigh it and then do some maths. Kitchen scales and a calculator are essential kitchen items :roll:
