How many grams is a serving/cup of fruit or vegetables?

Unfortunately I'm not familiar with the english and US measurements so I would be very grateful if someone could help me out with this issue.

Thanx

American cup measurements go by volume not weight so it's difficult to convert.

Try this: http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/gram_calc.htm

A typical 'serving' of fruit or vegetables is about 100-150g.  Because the calorie-count tends to be quite low, you don't have to be too precise.

Thank you for your answersSmile

I find this very useful. I've used to understand historical measurements like cubits etc.

The UK cup size is larger then the US (1 UK Cup =1.20095 US Cup), although generally in the UK we don't use cup measurements for cooking. However as this is an US based site, I think it is useful to know for logging purposes at least.

Naturally volume and weight are not the same thing. A cup full of cornflakes will not be the same as a cup full of nuts. If you need to find out weight, then get some kitchen scales.

Calorie Count has it's own unit converter.

Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
