You can enable volume measurements (such as cup, mL and L) for a recipe. To do so, provide specific gravity data (density) for the recipe.
To enable volume measures
- Open the recipe.
- On the Measures tab, enter a number of millilitres (mL) and its corresponding weight in grams (g). See Tip.
- To show the analyses for this recipe per 100mL, in the analysis pane, select the Liquid checkbox.
- Click Save.
To find out the specific gravity, you can use kitchen scales to weigh a certain volume of the recipe. For example, you could use a measuring cup to weigh 250mL of soup which weighs 263g.
- Now when you use this recipe as an ingredient in another recipe or as a food in a food record, you can use volume measures to enter its quantity.
- The Volume data provides a Volume Conversion Factor (or specific gravity) for the recipe so that weight can be converted to volume measures.
