The 100 Grams Project (Preview!)

The 100 Grams Project shows photos of 100 grams of various foods.

I'll be posting this month as many photos and foods as I can muster, and if it goes well, I'll start adding all the images from the project to a new blog.

It came about because on many occasions, I've searched online for pictures of 100 grams of different foods, usually because I was reading a recipe or nutritional information, but had no frame of reference for how 100 grams of that food might actually look.

Post a comment if there is a particular food you'd like to see included!

Here's a preview:

100 grams of fresh apricots has approximately 48 calories, 11 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of dietary fiber, 9 grams of sugar, and 1 gram of protein.

It also contains 39 percent of one's daily allowance of vitamin A, 17 percent of vitamin C, 1 percent of calcium, and 2 percent of iron.
