e.g. cup, tablespoon etc.
From what I’ve seen, it’s just selecting a default weight. While this works for thinks like meat and vegetables, it doesn’t make sense for processed goods. If you provided the capability to change the measurement of “standard portion” to something more useful, people might be more inclined to take the time to add food and use the information provided! I don’t know how much a cheeseburger might weigh, so I’d like to simply add a burger.
Yes! Many things I eat have cup or tbsp sized servings and I have to put it in in grams and then let the app convert it to ounces and I have to weigh it. I’d love not to be tied down by my food scale.
"Change/Add standard portion measurements for foods" (suggested by John D on 2018-12-06), including upvotes (14) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
Yes to what John said. Many other apps have this option.
Yes, please change the measurements..i don’t like always having to use my food scale for everything. Love the app, but really dislike this about the app.
It would be very helpful if you could add what a portion size should be; Especially if you are making more than one serving.

Totally agree. Just go with the MyFitnessPal version of this.. Whereever possible just default to listing as the actual calorie count, not a per 100g, or per g amount which we then have to convert.
Yes, also indicate the value to the "serving portion". Everytime I have to switch to grams, as I have no idea of how much is a "serving" portion.
A lot of pre-measured products are input badly; needs to be changed so units can be entered directly (1 square, .5 bars, etc.) rather than everything listed in fl. oz or dry oz. Scanning in a quick keto meal-bar shouldn't show possible metric measurements when put in imperial, and vice-versa, and needs to show '1 bar', not x-ounces which might not apply.
I would like to be able to choose between ml and g at the same time in the ingredients. For example cream, the calories is measured per 100 grams, the cream weights a total of 560g = 500ml. I used 200ml. How much is that in grams or calories? Its makes it a to much of a hassle to calculate that way and weight it all the time when I knew how much I used in ml. If I registered two parallel values/measurements it might be possible? Ex100g grains = 1,5dl grains
Maybe it’s just me who don’t know how to do it properly. But, it drives me nuts to create a food which weighs 40g with all relevant nutrients data based on 40g, for example, but when Yazio asks me to enter nutrients data to the standard portion of 100g.
This happens to me with almonds, I consume 6 almonds daily but the application puts 100 grams and I have no idea how much an almond weighs :-( hahaha.
It is difficult for me to know the weight of everything I eat. I can tell you if I ate 1/4 of a cup of something much easier, for example, than how many ounces something was. Often I only use ounces for liquids not solid foods so this makes calculating food and calories, the big point of the app, very difficult. I do enjoy the coach feature and meal planner though.
It would be useful to have the option to create a food with also 1 portion as quantity. I have some recipes with ingredients, nutritional values and bar code concerning a portion that doesn't correspond to 100g.
"Use standard measurements not just weight" (suggested by Amanda Washington on 2019-08-21), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
I see us users leaving feedback but no acknowledgement from YAZIO. Is this planned for an upcoming release, is it being discussed, what is the update? This was suggested at the beginning of the year....
Add an each option on the standard portion. Also be able to select whether you had half or whole.
I agreeFor ex. pasta 100g is for cooked pasta or not? 100g pasta became a 300g dish
I agree with most above: there should be a standard portion or standard measurements. I entered a food item. It is a pkg of 2.1 oz (add water) and is 240 calories - the app defaults to 114 cal, 1oz. that is misleading/confusing, especially when using oz instead of pkg and then defaulting to ‘1’. Also, since there are so many custom entries That don’t show verified and in odd portions I’m unsure of, I don’t feel very confident when choosing items that I actually have the correct calorie count.
I'd love to be able to add foods in decilitres. Because of my work, I eat out a lot (pretty much every lunch and sometimes dinners too). It would be a lot easier to estimate the amount in visible "size" such as decilitre, rather than in grams.
Add measures such as teaspoon, tablespoon, hand full. It wouldn't be necessary to use a scale all the time which is quite annoying.
Different ways to write the portions like gr/ kg/ cup etc.
"Recipie portions possibilities" (suggested by TALITA on 2020-06-02), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
Where I live we measure liquid in “Liter”. Bought a drink while in town and scanned the bottles bar code to add it to my daily food. The only unit available was “gram”. That’s used when weighing. I don’t think I’m the only one not carrying around a scale while in town. If this is not fixed it’s going to be impossible for me to use the app.
"Use cups measurements" (suggested by zujeily clemente on 2020-07-01), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
For example, the recipes say that olive oil (1 tsp,7ml). According to site kreatiewekosidees.com/tag/hoeveel-is the values are different, the value listed here corresponds to the size spoon you buy in the store, so in this case it should be olive oil (1 tsp,5 ml). With the tools I have available in Europe, I can't think of a combination that achieves this value without weighing up everything on a scale. Spoons: 1/8 tsp = 0.63 ml,1/2 tsp = 2.5 ml,3/4 tsp = 3,75 ml,1 tsp = 5ml,1 Tbsp = 15 ml

Yes! And all fruit and veg should be in with small, medium, large - eg small bell pepper. So I can have 1/2 small bell pepper instead of weighing. Other apps have this.
Please also include 50 grams portions. I prefer smaller portions, bigger variety rather then 100gram portions. Eg. Bread 50grams, Apple 60grams, pear 50 grams, cottage cheese 50 grams etc. Thank you!!

Add standard portions (tea spoon / table spoon/ cups, units etc). its' very difficult to guess how many grams doeas 6 nuts weight or 6 spoons of rice.
For the majority of things only having cups and gram to choose from is the only negative thing about the app. More choices like tablespoons, deciliter etc would make things so much easier.Also adding “small apple”, “medium apple”, “big apple” etc for the most common things would also be appreciated and helpful.
Add large serving sizes to fast food, like McDonald’s fries
How about one that says SERVING.I had 1 serving.. that simplescan the items, or manually enter. and have the default to servings as specified on packaging or online. Instead, you have this nightmare of a database where everyone and their brother and sister and making half-correct and cumbersome enties. I'm sorry, I just bought this yesterday, and I'm already considering a refundI love the app, but adding food is horrible
"Large servings" (suggested by Lachlan Davies on 2021-04-25), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
Sound good on first sight but I think the challenge ist, that everyone is using a different cup size by that you can't really measure overall. By that gram is always the same amount
Agree with Henry Smith above. The database is a sh*tshow because servings must be labeled using weight. The number of items that have a full serving's worth of calories identified as weighing 1g because the user entering it either doesn't understand or couldn't be bothered (and who can blame them) is ridiculous.Requiring units of weight or volume works fine for packaged products or fresh products that are usually labeled as such or be weighed at home; however, restaurant (fast food or otherwise) nutrition information is typically provided (at least in the US) as a single serving or portion, without any information as to the weight or volume of that item. Serving/unit/etc. should be allowed. E.g., 1 sandwich, 1 bowl, 1 entree, 1 piece, 12 crackers, etc.I really want to like this app but every time I try to switch to it, I'm repelled by the chaotic and sloppy state of the food database and the difficulty of adding new entries.
