Now, is this true, have I remembered correctly, and does it also apply to other liquids? For instance, I have markers on my cups so I get between 100-150g of milk each morning.
Does this equal 100-150ml? Because I had to manually enter the nutritional information, and on the carton it's per 100ml, not 100g. So I just assumed 100ml would equal 100g...
*goes a little crazy* ;)
1 cup = 236.5 ML and 1 cup of milk is 244g so 236.5ML/244g*100g = 97 ML is the same as 100g of milk. So basically for milk 100ml = 100gram.
Edited to add: cause the volume is different this tools lets you choose the type (sometimes even the brand) of food you're converting.
Even if there was an exact correspondence between ml and grams, that would be mg (milligrams) not gram
You don't. It would be different for each substance. If you want to know the weight of a liquid in grams, put the cup on the food scale, reset it to zero, then fill the cup up. The conversion to grams for that particular liquid is whatever the scale says it is.
Hope that clears up any confusion.
And now I can pour milk on my breakfast without stressing that I'm inadvertently doubling my calories ;)
I know this is old but just to clear it all up...
1 gallon of milk is 3785.411 millilitre
1 gallon of milk weighs approximately 8.6 pounds
8.6 pounds is 3900.894 grams
so... (3900.894 grams / 3785.411 millilitres)*100 = 103.05
so... 100 ml of milk weighs 103.05 grams.
As some people have mentioned milk is slightly more dense than water so by volume it weighs a little more. But yes, it is roughly 1:1
Hope this helps some others now!
and make sure your gravitational measurements are accurate for determining weight too!lol
You're right! I didn't think to check that this was all on Earth! :-)
by way of further explanation, I know that an earlier poster did covert 100ml to grams but since values on milk are listed in 100ml I thought it would be easier for people to have the value in grams, just because this website only allows you to put in serving values in grams not ml.
this way you just have to type in 103.5 grams into the serving values rather than having to recalculate all the values on the packaging...
Well, that's what I did anyway and how I came across this thread.
it's not a perfect conversion for all liquids, but it's close enough. even for water, it's only perfect at sea level.
For all watery liquids (water, juice, milk, vinegar, etc.) 1 g = 1 ml is close enough.
For oils, the density is low enough (and the calories high enough) that you should factor it in if you're using a lot. In general, 1 ml of oil weighs about 0.9 g. So, 5 mL (1 teaspoon) is only 4.5 g. Not a big deal. But if you wanted to use 1 cup in baking, that's 250 mL but only 225 g. If you weighed out 250 g, you'd be getting 225 more calories than you expected.
That said, when I'm entering new items on the site and I only know the volume, I enter that (in ml) in the spot for weight - 'cause what else am I going to put there? :-)
