The Difference Between a Gram and an Ounce
A gram is a mass measurement from the metric system. Even though the US doesn’t use the metric system, they use the gram to weigh food items. The gram is also a universal measurement in engineering and scientific fields.
The ounce comes from the United States Customary and British Imperial Systems. Its official name is the avoirdupois ounce. An ounce measures weight and is standard for food packaging and postage. There are 28.349523125 grams in one ounce.
An avoirdupois ounce is not the same as a fluid ounce. A fluid ounce measures the volume of liquid and is larger in the US Customary System than in the Imperial system.
