Dietary Scales are used to manage food portions for meats, grains and other ingredients used in baking and cooking. Other names that you may be more familiar with are kitchen scale, top loading dial scale and portion control scale. Although these scales are sometimes referred to under different names, the goal is the same; to weigh portions of food for recipes or for dietary portion control. A food portion scale can be an important tool for those that are trying to lose weight or an athlete practicing proper sports nutrition that requires a certain amount of protein or carbohydrates to be consumed at each meal. A dial food scale will typically weigh up to 32 oz. of food while a digital food scale will go as high as 11 lbs. which can be useful when weighing meats or complete meals. Dietary scales are often utilized in cafeterias, delis, bakeries, pizza parlors and restaurants.
