    Default 30 grams equals how many tablespoons/cups?

    I've been enjoying my first custom mix, but have one question: How do I measure a 30-gram serving in tablespoons or cups?

    Thanks.

    then google "cc to tablespoon/cup" to find the appropriate amount.



    However, with a custom mix this may not work. Most accurate way is to go with a scale and weigh yourself

    Thank you, but I'm terrible at math and I don't understand that. And I don't have a scale.

    Isn't there just some simple way of knowing how much to use for one serving? The nutritional data on my mix says it's for 30 grams. Is that like a quarter cup or 2 tablespoons or what?

    The most common usage is a 70cc scoop, then proteins would be around 30g, and carbs like dextrose maltodextrin would be closer to 40g.

    1tbsp is about 15cc, so you'd need a bit over 4 tbsp (according to google). And however the hell many cups that would be.

    ... which is why 70cc scoops are so common.

    60cc = about a 1/4c

    70cc = about a 1/3c

    I use old protein powder scoops in my oatmeal...that's the only reason I figured it out (one day I scooped 60cc scoops into a 1cup measuring cup, and there were 4, it's not perfect but it's close enough for rock and roll).
