Conversion to 1/8 teaspoon

Have a product that the serving size is 1/8 of a teaspoon which I come to believe it would be .625 grams correct?

Based upon the manufactors specifications for a serving size of 100 grams they have provided the following:

Calories 318
DV (Daily Value)
Total Fat 17g 26%
saturated fat 3g 16%
Sodium 30mg 1%
Total Carb 57g 18%
Dietary Fiber 27g ~
Sugars 10g ~
Protein 12g 24%

Vitamin A 655%
Iron 43%
Vitamin C 127%
Calcium 14%

DV is based on a 2000 calorie diet

Trying to convert all the numbers to 1/8 of a teaspoon

Re: Conversion to 1/8 teaspoon

Can you post the product or the density. A serving size of 1/8th teaspoon seems too small to equal 100 grams.

No way to tell. The volume is about 0.625 mL. If it were the density of water, it would also be 0.625 g. If the density is different that water, it could be more or less (probably less, as not to many foods are appreciably denser than water, quite a few are less dense).
