does 125 g of yogurt = 125 ml of yogurt?
just wondering because i always eat 1/2 cup of yogurt and assume its the same as the 125g serving they mention on the label.
Grams are a unit of weight and not equivalent to milliliters which is a unit of volume...
With a food scale...
=( ah shucks
I've noticed that whenever I've weighed my yogurt into a bowl with a measure line, it pretty well matches up 125g-125ml. More liquidy yogurts might be different, but I find the half-cup equivalency to be accurate.
I looked up yoplait yogurt just for fun...
6oz = 170 g
If your yogurt has the same consistency (density) as yoplait then...
1/2 cup = 4 oz = 113 g
my yogurt IS yoplait! haha. hey this was so helpful, thanks!!! =)
Apparently 245g of yogurt = 250 mL of water. I've found quite a few sources that all give that conversion. Therefore, I just do equal. When it's 175g of yogurt, I measure out 3/4 of a cup.
1 mL of water weighs approximately 1 g. Since yogurt is mostly water, I would guess that it would be a good approximation.
