How to convert grams to Milliliters?

It is possible to convert grams to milliliters if the density of the ingredient is known. Gram is a unit of weight whereas milliliters is a unit of volume. In order to convert grams to milliliters, divide the weight (grams) by the density (g/mL) of the ingredients or substances.

Here is a table summarizing some of the most common ingredients and their respective gram to milliliters conversion.

Rookie Mistake to avoid

Assuming grams and milliliters are equal for all ingredients is a rookie mistake for most beginners when they first enter the kitchen looking at recipes and start cooking or baking. Due to the density of water which is 1 g/mL, 1 mL of water is equal to 1 g of water and 10 mL of water is equal to 10 g of water. However, many beginners assume the same conversion for other ingredients or cooking materials and this is not correct because different ingredients have different density.

How to convert Milliliters to grams?

Milliliter (mL) is a unit of volume and gram (g) a unit of weight, it is possible to convert from milliliters to grams, providing you know the density of the ingredient. To convert mL to grams, multiply the volume (mL) by the density (in g/mL).
