The purpose of this study is to establish the one serving size of Korean Indigeneous Food. Serving size is necessary to make Nutrition Labeling which is required to export Korean food product especially to the United States of America. The basic data of 100 food items were collected through searching traditional and recent cookbooks. 4 industrial foodservices as noncommercial foodservice and 30 traditional ethnic restaurants and 12 gourmet restaurants in hotels as commercial foodservlce were explored to collect the data of actual serving size of each items. Moreover, experimental cooking and sensory evaluation by trained panels were conducted to assess quantity preference of selected food items. All data were rearranged through food type, that is, main dish, side dish, dessert and health food. One serving sizes showed wide variety according to the different menus that include selected food items. Therefore, means and ranges of serving size by four research methods were presented item by item. There were wide differences in intakes of main dishes, for example, noodles were around $50{\sim}100g$, cereals were 20 g, which means the one serving size can be differenciated by the food usage. In intakes of side dishes, average of side dishes were $20{\sim}30g$, but Kimches, the first traditional Korean food, were $30{\sim}50g$, and the other condiments, pepper paste and soy paste were $5{\sim}10g$. About desserts, liquid types were around 200 g, the other sugars were $10{\sim}20g$, the kind of teas were almost $2{\sim}3g$. The health foods-many kinds of that were Ginseng-were averaged 20 g; but dried mushrooms were around 2 g.
