What is a gram?
Gram (abbreviated as "g") is a mass unit in the metric measurement system used to weigh non-liquid ingredients.
Interestingly, that gram is also spelled as gramme (grammes plural) in British English, but it is still abbreviated as "g."
Troy ounces vs. avoirdupois ounces
An international avoirdupois ounce (abbreviated as "oz") is commonly used to measure the weight of foods.
In the United States, while grocery shopping, you will notice that most food items are sold in ounces.
Also, American recipes measure ingredients in cups and ounces. There are 16 ounces in the avoirdupois pound.
An international troy ounce (abbreviated as "t oz" or "oz t") is typically employed to determine the weight of gold and other precious metals. There are 12 troy ounces in the troy pound.
These mass units are different in converting to other measurement units and application uses.
A troy ounce is approximately 10% more than an avoirdupois ounce.
One troy ounce equals 1.09714 ounces.
How many ounces in a gram
Let's have a look at how many oz make one gram.
1 gram to oz (1 g to oz)
1 gram = 0.035274 ounces (US customary system), or
1 g = 0.035274 oz
1 gram = 0.0321507 troy ounces, or
1 g = 0.0321507 t oz
How to convert grams to ounces
To convert g to oz, divide the weight in grams by 28.349523125, where 28.349523125 is the conversion factor.
Here is a simple formula:
oz = g ÷ 28.349523125.
Let's have a look at a few examples. The calculation below uses the US measurement system.
How many ounces in 50 grams
50 g ÷ 28.35 = 1.76 oz, so
there are 1.76 ounces in 50 grams.
How many ounces in 100 grams?
There are 3.5 ounces in 100 grams.
How many ounces in 150 grams?

How many ounces in 250 grams?
There are 8.8 ounces in 250 grams.
How many ounces in 500 grams?

To convert grams to troy ounces, divide the number of grams by 31.1034768, where 31.1034768 is the conversion factor.
Here is a simple formula:
troy oz = g ÷ 31.1034768.
For example, how many ounces are in 10 grams of gold?
10 g ÷ 31.10 = 0.32 t oz, so
there are 0.32 troy ounces in 10 grams of gold.

How to weigh food?
Accurate weight of ingredients is a guarantee for success when cooking and baking.
A simple kitchen scale is an essential tool for weighing food. You can set it to read the measurements of dry ingredients in grams, ounces, and pounds also liquids in fluid ounces and milliliters.
Place the scale on a flat working surface, turn it on and place an empty mixing bowl on the scale.
Once you see the bowl's weight, press the tare button, and the number will return to "zero." The container’s weight will be automatically subtracted from the measurement.
Now add your ingredient to the bowl and read the correct weight on a digital display.
If you need to measure multiple ingredients in the same bowl, reset the scale to "zero" weight after measuring each ingredient.
Please remember the importance of precise measurements, or you might be unhappy with the outcome of your cooking.
