I have found a lot of serving sizes are in grams which is IMHO not too user friendly. For instance, searching on a McDonalds hamburger doesn’t give you a “1 hamburger” serving size but a serving size in grams. Same for a Cheese Mushroom Pizza. I don’t think our users would have any idea what a pizza serving size of 78 grams is.

Am I just doing my searches incorrectly or is this a common serving size? Thanks.

Let me ask the question another way. If there is a serving size in grams, is this always a “1 serving” size; i.e. if I see a serving size of 78 grams of pizza can I substitute “1 serving” instead and still have it be correct? Thanks.

We are in the process of tidying up some of the serving sizes, mcdonalds in particular. There is currently no way to pass in a different service size and see a modified result. If you see any other restaurants other than McDonald’s with serving sizes that need tidying, please feel free to email them to api at nutritionix dot com.
