What does 30 grams of cheese look like?
Asked by teamshorty on Aug 27, 2009 in Nutrition



The nutrition information says that a serving size is 30 grams, but what does that look like? What can I compare it to?


Answer

Thirty grams is about one ounce.  I've seen one ounce of hard cheese compared to four dice or one domino or a 3/4" X 3/4" cube or your thumb.  One and one half ounces of hard cheese is supposed to look like a 9-volt battery or your index and middle fingers together.  Estimating portions is fine when you are away from home, but for accuracy, it's best to invest in a food scale.  Read a question and answer about food scales in the Ask Mary archives.
