How much is two ounces?
Asked by rcbchick09 on Apr 27, 2009 in Nutrition



I ate spaghetti last night and I was just wondering if you knew where I could get a table for ounces converted to cups so I could know how much I ate. (On the box, it was 180 calories for every 2 ounces.)


Answer

You can convert liquid ounces to cups by dividing the total ounces by 8 because 8 liquid ounces = 1 cup; however, the conversion does not hold true for dry ounces because foods have different densities.  For instance, 2-ounces of popcorn (popped) measures 7 cups, whereas 2-ounces of peanut butter is the size of a ping pong ball.  For spaghetti, 2-ounces of dry spaghetti equals about 1 cup of cooked spaghetti.  Read more about how to estimate the size of food portions in the Calorie Count advice section.

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.
