How many grams is a serving/cup of fruit or vegetables?

Unfortunately I'm not familiar with the english and US measurements so I would be very grateful if someone could help me out with this issue.

Thanx

American cup measurements go by volume not weight so it's difficult to convert.

Try this: http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/gram_calc.htm

A typical 'serving' of fruit or vegetables is about 100-150g.  Because the calorie-count tends to be quite low, you don't have to be too precise.

Thank you for your answersSmile

I find this very useful. I've used to understand historical measurements like cubits etc.

The UK cup size is larger then the US (1 UK Cup =1.20095 US Cup), although generally in the UK we don't use cup measurements for cooking. However as this is an US based site, I think it is useful to know for logging purposes at least.

Naturally volume and weight are not the same thing. A cup full of cornflakes will not be the same as a cup full of nuts. If you need to find out weight, then get some kitchen scales.

Calorie Count has it's own unit converter.
