Attached below, for your information, is a comparison between the metric and Imperial volume measurement systems.
MyEChef uses metric as it standard volume format for recipe specifications.
You will see the attached table shows metric volumes in millilitres in column 1.
Column 2 shows the direct fluid ounces comparison.
Column 3 shows the rounded off metric equivalent for millilitre volumes. These are not exact conversions, but approximations, and you will find variations on other sites and cookery books, but you will need to be consistent within your own business to avoid confusion.
Whilst metric is used as the international standard for weight, the UK and USA still use fluid ounces, as well as “cup” measurements in the US and Canada.
It is important when writing recipe specifications that you use a standard volume format so that your team are not having to jump between, or mixing the two, which may result in poor execution of a recipe specification when being used by a colleague.
|Millilitres||Fluid Ounces||Approx mls|
