# How Many Grams In An Ounce?

With basically every country in the world except for America using the metric system, a common problem for those using recipes created overseas (particularly in baking), is that the measurements are in the metric system.

## How Many Grams In An Ounce?

There are 28 grams within one ounce. If you can remember this number, even if you find yourself without this handy cooking conversion chart, you’ll be able to make some quick calculations.

With there being no easy conversion formula that doesn’t involve some math, I created this table of some commonly found baking measurements in the US, with their metric equivalents.

Interestingly enough, when it comes to baking, I do appreciate the beauty of the metric system. Our normal way of measuring by way of an ingredient’s volume is not particularly precise, especially when it comes to flours and powders.

An example that commonly affects recipe results is that the amount that is in a cup will differ by how packed the ingredient was beforehand. For this reason, you may also want to use grams or ounces with a scale to get the best result possible when you are baking.

## How Many Grams In An Eighth Of An Ounce?

Another common question asked is how many grams are in an eighth of an ounce. I did not add this to the table because this is a small amount you will not commonly find in baking recipes, but for those who would like to know it is 3.5 grams.

## How To Weigh Food?

Turn on your scale and place a clean, dry container of your choice on top when it is ready. When the container’s weight is shown, press the tare button and this number should return to zero. This will allow you to add your ingredient to the container and find its correct weight without making a mess on your scale.

Goodness, yes, that systems makes so little sense! I usually roughly equate an ounce to 30 grams and figure as long as the ratio of ingredients remains the same it’s all dandy. (I also use an actual cup to measure cups in a recipe, for I am not going to turn myself into a madwoman covered in conversion charts. Works fine most of the time – or at least I’ll never know if the original was intended to taste differently.)
