mL to Grams and Grams to mL

Please choose a cooking ingredient. A density is required for converting between mL and grams. If your ingredient is not on the list, click 'add own' and enter a density figure. add own
Convert quickly and easily between mL and grams using this cooking calculator tool. Select a cooking ingredient from the drop-down list, or enter your own ingredient density figure.

The tables below show mL and gram conversions for water. We're referencing pure water because it's a 1:1 conversion. As many of the common liquids we use in our lives are water-based, we can reference the same conversion (assuming we're estimating for a recipe, and don't want to be 100% accurate). As an example, 1mL of milk weighs about 1.04 grams. So, for a home recipe, that 0.04 difference is quite insignificant.

How to convert mL to grams

Although the milliliter is a unit of volume and gram a unit of weight, it is possible to convert between the two, providing you know the density of your ingredient. To convert mL to grams, you multiply the volume (in mL) by the density (in g/mL).

The reason we need to know the density of the substance is because some ingredients will be denser and heavier than others. So, for example, 150ml of sugar weighs less than 150ml of honey.

How to convert grams to mL

When converting grams to milliliters, you need to remember that the gram is a unit of weight and milliliter a unit of volume. This means that to make the conversion you need to know the density of your substance (ideally in g/ml, to avoid conversion first). To convert grams to mL, divide your weight (in grams) by the density (in g/mL).
