It also says so on the nutritional info label on food packaging and will often say it in two different weights ie. ounces or grams. Besides measuring using cups or tablespoons, it's helpful to have a food scale for meats.

Yeah, when you let people make their own entries without moderation, sometimes you don't get the best quality of information.

If it's in the Spark database original data though, not user-entered, it should be relatively self explanatory. One "serving" of a Mars Bar is pretty obvious - that's why that is probably in there as "1 serving", as opposed to rice, which will be by weight.

This is probably an OLD question. but when tracking food, some just say a "serving" and I don't know what THAT is! Or "so many grams." I am always thankful to those who put down the amts like 1 whole, or TBLSP's etc.
