The Unit of Measure (UOM) is how a specific food item is proportioned to determine the size or quantity. Although most items are measured in ounces, you can also measure items by the cup, slice, serving, or other measurement unit.
The Units of Measure page allows you to add, change, and delete units of measure.
The system includes standard units of measure. The only changes that should be made to the Units of Measure are in the appearance or abbreviation (Oz = Ounce). They must be equivalent in the significance or meaning (EA=Each; Slice = SL, Serving = Srv).
Do not change the meaning or connotation as this will change throughout the program and can have undesirable results.
