How Many mL in a Gram?
Milliliters and grams are difficult to convert because while they are both in the metric system, they measure different types of items. Milliliters are designed for measuring volume while grams are used for measuring mass. Therefore the conversion is not as simple as other conversions because you need the density of the ingredient you are measuring.
To convert milliliters to grams, you need to multiply the volume in milliliters by the density in g/mL.
Grams = milliliters X density in g/mL.
To convert grams to milliliters divide the weight in grams by the density in g/mL.
Milliliters = Weight in grams/density in g/mL

|Flour||100 mL = 60 grams||0.6 g/mL|
|Sugar||100 mL = 84.5 grams||0.845 g/mL|
|Salt||100 mL = 121.7 grams||1.217 g/mL|
|Vegetable Oil||100 mL = 89 grams||0.89 g/mL|
|Butter||100 mL = 95.9 grams||0.959 g/mL|
|Milk||100 mL = 103 grams||1.03 g/mL|
|Margarine||100 mL = 93 grams||0.93 g/mL|
Frequently Asked Questions
Is 1g equal to 1 mL?
One gram does not equal one mL as it depends on the material you are measuring. When measuring water, 1g does equal 1 mL because water has a density of 1.
How much is 100g in mL?
The measurement of 100 grams in mL will vary depending on the material you are measuring. For butter, 100g is equal to 109.77 mL.
What is a gram in ounces?
A gram is approximately 0.035 ounces.
What is 1 mL in ounces?
A milliliter is equal to about 0.033 ounces.
Are milliliters and grams interchangeable?
Milliliters and grams are both part of the metric system however grams measure mass or dry items while milliliters measure volume or liquid. They are not the same, and when baking you will want to take the time to convert to ensure the measurements are close to exact.
