How much is 1 ml in grams?

Converting between ml and grams for water is a simple 1:1 conversion process. This is because one gram of water equals exactly one milliliter. For other ingredients, the density of the ingredient should be factored in. As an example, 1 mL of milk measures around 1.04g and 1mL of cooking oil measures around 0.92g.

The tables below show mL and gram conversions for some common cooking ingredients.

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).
