Eventually I want to be able to use the Alnutrin vitamins and do some home cooking so what kind of scale do i need
Metric OR something else? Visuals appreciated and would be very helpful. I can then print it to make sure i get what I need. I cooked some chicken and mixed it with juices and canned also some Hearts & gizzards They were Paws up Cool  Thank you for your help with my recipes also!  Smiley amkm1  Grin

AKM1, this is where I got my little scale. It will go up to 1 kg and measure in tiny increments. It will also do imperial measurements:

I just got a standard digital cooking scale, one that reads both in grams and in pounds/ounces.  They seem to be available almost anywhere that sells any amount of kitchen gear now. 

It says on the Alnutrin site to get a scale that reads into the decimals in grams, in case your recipe comes out to need 13.8 grams of Alnutrin (which was the case for mine).  I did get the OK to just round up to 14 g though on that one.  Some of the recipes on the Alnutrin site are in grams, some in ounces.  Some are set up to use those pre-measured packets, some have you measure out a specific amount of Alnutrin.  So you may want to figure out your recipe before ordering, and before getting your scale, depending on which product you want to buy. 

My food processor is about full with the recipes that use around 900 g of chicken, which seem to usually use around 14-15 g of Alnutrin.  So those recipes that use a whole pre-measured packet, which I think is 40 grams, make huge batches.  I'm not sure how people are processing those.  A batch that has about 900 g of chicken fed my 3 cats for around 3 days of meals as a guide.
