How can I record measurements in liters and milliliters for liquid products.

I prefer to record measurement in metric, but I have seen no entry selection for liters and milliliters. Why does it appear that these measurement are not available.

    Lab analyzed foods report data by weight (grams) rather than volume and our system was designed around those high quality data sources. While they often have common volumetric measurements used in cooking, we'd love to include more metric measures as well.

    This is tricky with branded products because they don't usually report the weight of liquid products. For water or liquids with a similar density, you can estimate 1 g = 1 mL when entering serving sizes in grams.
