# Converting mg into iu/kg

I want to make a comparison between the Vitamin E in two different dog foods. However one says 690mg per kilo and the other says 70.0iu/kg.
How can I 'convert' one of the amounts into the same measurement as the other so that they can be compared?

Hope this makes sense!

 According to various google results 1mg equates to 1.5iu - so 690mg = 1035iu and 70iu = 47mg 19:02 Sun 22nd Apr 2012 One thousand microgrammes (1000µg) is the same as one milligramme so 690mg is equal to 690,000µg and 70µg is equal to 0.07mg. So to compare, the one wi 690mg has almost 10,000 times as much Vitamin E than the other, which seems to be a huge difference. 19:10 Sun 22nd Apr 2012 Not micrograms Corby - iu means 'International Units' 19:13 Sun 22nd Apr 2012 ignore me, I assumed (wrongly) that the iu was an attempt to write the symbol for "µ"... I'll get ma jaikit. 19:15 Sun 22nd Apr 2012 Question Author How did you find that on google dave? I looked but was still lost! Corbyloon - That symbol that you are using, what is it? 19:15 Sun 22nd Apr 2012 Searched for vitamin e international units milligrams https://www.google.co...qi=&aql=&gs_nf=&gs_l= 19:17 Sun 22nd Apr 2012 It's the symbol for "micro" meaning a millionth. I thought you'd mis-read the symbol or had tried to type an approximation for it. DOH!!!!!!! 19:19 Sun 22nd Apr 2012 Question Author Ah thanks for clearing that up dave. And thanks for giving me the answer to a question I still don't really understand! Much appreciated. 19:20 Sun 22nd Apr 2012 Pleasure :) d xx 19:21 Sun 22nd Apr 2012
