It is 2 Tbsp?....right?
Reason: Moved to Foods
If I didn't have a food scale I would measure 1oz of shredded cheese as it goes in the exchange system to equal one protein exchange, & That would be 1/4 of a cup, leveled & 1oz of cubed cheese is about 1 inch cube. I never trust slices theyre always cut so differently so I ALWAYS weigh them.
Edit: Oh wow I was late replying because I wrote a novel.
Found a 5 ounce measuring glass at Walmart some time back but believe they still have. Gives the following [volume] equivalents:
15ml = 1 tbsp = 3 tsp = .5 oz
and so on in 1/2 ounce increments.
60ml = 4 tbsp = 1/4 cup = 2 oz
I rarely buy 'weighed' cheese, usually already packaged and labeled.
My last pack of shredded cheese was 16 ounces, nutrition data said serving size was 1/4 cup and 16 servings in the pack. It appear with this shredded each 2 oz. by volume equals 1 oz. by weight.
Feta block cheese was in an 8 oz. [226g] pack. Serving size was 1 oz. Since I'm the only one using, rather than weigh, I cut, by 'eye' into 8 pieces and repackage. They, of course, aren't exactly the same size but in 8 times of using 've consumed the entire pack so it all averages out.
Best wishes to all. Thank you Calorie-Count

You can get used ones at Goodwill
A shot glass is one ounce, so I'm pretty sure you can measure it in there (by volume at least!)
Fluid onces and an ounce of a solid food with air pockets is not the same!
16 Tbs to a cup
1/4 c = 4 tbs
1/8 c = 8 tbs
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
