The serving size of butter that I usually see is 1 tablespoon. That seems reasonable to me.

Just because 1 cup shows up as the first option, does not mean than this is a portion size.
It is just an option. Select the amount based on what you are doing with the butter.

Yes, that's what you do. Calculate the numbers for your preferred serving size then manually enter it as a food item.

I'm sure others than myself have found that the default serving size of 1 cup for butter is somewhat odd. Even a tablespoon seems excessive, so every time I eat butter, I have to switch the serving size to approximate a teaspoon.

Could I get around this by entering butter as a food not listed in my favorites and inserting my preferred serving size?

Looking forward to what any of you Spark experts out there have to say on this subject.
