use plastic cup as a measure in recipes

When you follow a recipe at home and you do not have a meter for liquids, you can use the plastic cup as a measurement in recipes.

The plastic cup standard, the classic white that you put on the table for water is 200 cc.
In terms of liquid, the container contains 200 ml of liquid.
Just follow the recipe and make the proportions.
If, for example, the recipe calls for 100 ml of milk, filled half the glass.

There are also other measures such as cups of 166 cc, 300 cc, 30 cc.

Just remember that cc = ml

Convert milliliters into grams from ml to g

conversion from grams to milliliters

How to convert milliliters into grams from ml to g? The question that is often faced with a recipe.

To get an accurate conversion from milliliters (ml) in grams (g) should know the density of the liquid that is to be converted.
Each material has its own density, its own specific weight.
We will use as a reference the conversion of the base liquid, water.

To make the conversion is sufficient to replace the abbreviation “ml” in “g” because the relationship is headed.

  • 10 ml = 10 g
  • 100 ml = 100 g
  • 1000 ml = 1000 g

In cooking, you can refer to this conversion only when you are using the liquid density and smoothness as they approach the water as the drinks in general and also for wines, even if they have a specific gravity slightly different.

Do not use this conversion, or at least be careful when you are dealing with spirits, or dense beverages such as chocolate.

relationship between the measures of liquids

In reading the recipes you will notice that liquids are not always expressed in the same way.
Sometimes in liters, sometimes in dl, or cl, ml or cc.

To put order among these different ways to indicate the same value, you can use this table with the Relationship between measures of liquids.
In a moment you will spend liter in ml or cc to liters, or from cl to ml.
