What exactly is the difference between portion size and serving size? I have been told there is a difference. Who and how is that determined?

— Jody Criman


Sometimes I get some of your questions ahead and I thought, yes, for example, in a cookbook, when you're writing a recipe, you don't say how many portions it makes you say serves X number of people. So here you go Jody. And everyone serving size is a standardized amount of food. It may be used to quantify recommended amounts as is the case with my plate food group or represent quantities that people typically consume on a nutrition facts label. You know, we wanna read labels. Portion size is the amount of food you choose to eat. So there you have it.
