Default quantity and measurement should be taken from analysis.quantity and analysis.unit Default view would containt original ingredients quantity and measurment despite whether it metric or imperial.
If user switches measurement to Metric, on FE we should take quantity and measurement from analysis.alternative_measurments.ammount.quantity and analysis.alternative_measurments.ammount.unit
where "measurement_system": "MEASUREMENT_SYSTEM_METRIC"
Or "measurement_system": "MEASUREMENT_SYSTEM_IMPERIAL" for imperial.
