Household measures can be modified by changing the value in the unit box over each measure description. For example, if the measure is “1 cup, shredded” and you want to know the nutrients in ½ of a cup, enter either 1/2 or 0.5 in the unit box in place of the “1” already there. Then press the “Apply Changes” button and the nutrient content for the modified household measure will be calculated and displayed.

The quantity in the 100-gram column can also be changed. Take the gram weight of your food and divide by 100 and enter that value in the box in the 100 gram column and click on the “Apply Changes” button and the nutrient content for your weight will be calculated and displayed. For example, if your food item weighs 78 grams, enter 0.78 in the box in the 100 gram column, click on “Apply Changes” and the nutrient content of 78 grams of your food item will be displayed.
