How Do You 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.

Can You 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).

Conversion Table

The table below shows 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 looking for an estimate for a recipe, and not a 100% accurate result). As an example, 1mL of milk weighs about 1.04 grams. So, for a recipe, that 0.04 difference is quite insignificant.
