Adding Ingredients - Gram Weight for Liquids

Q.  Is it most accurate to obtain weights in grams, even of liquid ingredients?


A.  In the ESHA software, gram weight is a required field for all database foods, even  liquid ingredients. The gram weight for volume measure allows the software to perform volume conversions. Foods that only provide a volume measure (no gram weight) cannot be entered into the database until a gram weight is found or estimated.
