1/3 of a cup about?
I know I need a food scale but its Activia yogurt and Im not sure how much 100 grams works out to as on their nutrition label.

If you go to you can find a conversion chart. Here is the link:

you just enter whatever amount you have, say 1 cup, hit the conversion button, and it will tell you what that is equivalent to in ounces, liters, pints, tablespoons, teaspoons, etc. There is a little button to change from cups to a bunch of different measurements. So if you enter 100 grams, it will tell you it is equivalent to 3.527 ounces.

Try that out and see if it works for you!

About 1/5 of a 500 g tub.
Or a bit less than 1/2 cup.
Roughly 3oz

Hope this helps. The easiest way would be to look at the size of the tub and portion it out from there.

Its a little less than 1/2 cup. 1/3 cup is probably a decent estimate.

1 ounce is 28 grams

The old "1mL of water weighs 1g" rule might be good rough estimate to follow - even for yogurt - just until you get a scale. Sure, it might not be 100% accurate, but in my own experience, it's actually been pretty close with most liquids (including my yogurt, though I use a different brand), and it's better than random guessing in my opinion.

Cups are the devil's measure. As adolson13 says, water has a density of 1 gram per 1 ml. You have to accept some error for liquids with different densities.

For cream and many common liquids, the error's within 5%. For ice cream, the error is within 10%. Yogurt is somewhere between the two.

What's holding up your purchase of digital scales?
