Measuring grams (dry goods)

When European metrics and American standards are written differently in recipes, it can be confusing. How many grams are there in 1 ounce, actually? There are 28 grams in 1 ounce or even 30 grams (as shown through some conversion measurements to the decimal).

Handy Trick: So if you can remember that 28 grams (g) is an oz then when a recipe comes up in grams, simply do the math to find the quantities in 4 oz., 6 oz., and 8 oz. of dry ingredients. Divide the number of g by 28 to see the ounces! This method is so convenient when baking brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and measuring ingredients like rice flour.

American US Standard vs UK Metric (approximate)

Why doesn’t America use grams for writing recipes? America uses liters and grams in manufacturing and international trade but not typically in recipe development and showcased in recipes from online websites. Americans use ounces to measure dry ingredients and Europeans work with metrics.

The only way to tell an exact measurement is by weighing ingredients, as shown above that by the decimal 28 or 30 g both shows 1 oz, as does 225 and 227 g both equals 8 oz.

How to measure dry weight

Using a cooking and baking kitchen scale is a great tool for achieving an exact measurement. Place a container on the scale and click the “tare” button then add the dry ingredients to measure the weight. The “tare” button will deduct the weight of the container to provide a more accurate measurement. Measuring spoons and measuring cups are also used in measuring butter, flour, and sugars.

When measuring flour, use a measuring cup and shake any extra flour away until the top is even, or use a knife. To measure with a knife, use the flat part to scrape across the cup to remove excess flour. Then proceed to measure or transfer the flour to the container on a kitchen scale.

Butter and Coconut Oil

Butter has tablespoons written on the package for convenient measuring. Use these measurements when the recipe reads in metrics. Coconut oil that is at room temperature and slightly soft can also be substituted for butter.

  • ¼ cup of butter = 57 g
  • ⅓ cup of butter = 76 g
  • ½ cup of butter = 113 g
  • 1 cup of butter = 227 g

Flour

Here is a quick-look for measuring dry goods and flour. When a recipe calls for these ingredients in UK metrics, these are what they quickly convert to.

  • 34 g = 1.2 oz
  • 45 g = 1.6 oz
  • 68 g = 2.4 oz
  • 136 g = 4.8 oz

White Sugars and Coconut Sugar

Granulated sugar and coconut sugar convert according to these measurements. To use a scale to measure, add the sugar to a measuring cup and shake it to even the top. Then transfer the sugar to a container on a kitchen scale for the correct weight.

  • 25 g = .89 oz or 2 tablespoons
  • 50 g = 1.78 oz
  • 67 g = 2.37 oz
  • 100 g = 3.55 oz
  • 134 g = 4.73 oz
  • 150 g = 5.3 oz
  • 201 g = 7.1 oz

Brown Sugar

Brown sugar is typically instructed to be packed tight when measuring. Here are the conversions for weight. First pack brown sugar in a measuring cup then transfer to a container that is on a scale (with all ingredients, first clicking “tare” to remove the container weight).

  • 55 g = 1.9 oz
  • 73 g = 2.58 oz
  • 110 g = 3.88 oz
  • 220 g = 7.75 oz

How many grams is 1 ounce?

One ounce is equal to 28 grams (0.98767093459 ounces), and some conversion calculators show around 30 grams equaling 1 ounce (1.0582188585 ounces).

4 ounces is how many grams?

  • 4 oz, ¼ pound (3.9859577003 oz.) = 113 g
  • 4 oz, ¼ pound (4.0212316623 oz.) = 114 g
  • 4 oz, ¼ pound (4.0565056242 oz.) = 115 g

6 oz is how many grams?

Six oz. is the same as 170 g or exactly 170.09712 oz.

One cup is how many grams?

Given that 1 cup is 8 oz. or ½ pound, then there are about 227 grams per cup (weight).

16 ounces is how many grams?

One pound is 16 oz, which equals 454 g.

  • 454 g = 16 ounces, 1 pound (16.014378725)
