Archaic dssp?

Postby arlenejg » Mon Aug 30, 2004 4:39 am

Years ago a nursing instructor gave me the assignment of finding out what the "dssp" on little plastic med cups stands for. At long last, a pharmacist told me it was for "dessert spoonful". Does anyone know whether this is correct? PLease reply to arlenejg@hotmail.com as I doubt I'll be able to find this forum again. Thank you very much! :?

dssp is an abbrviation for dessertspoon. It is a unit of volume sometimes used in food recipes. The dessertspoon is equal to 2 teaspoons; this is roughly equivalent to 10 milliliters in the U.S. and 7 milliliters in Britain.
