All these websites I'm reading are showing that 1 cup of rolled oats equals roughly 90 grams.
However I constantly keep coming up with 115grams for 1 cup of rolled oats.
Anyone know if for sure how many grams there are in 1 cup of rolled oats.

did you weigh the measuring cup?
07-29-2008, 07:21 PM #4
yeah of course i did.
i tried like 3 different measurements and still was getting like 120 grams or so per cup.

You can't weigh the cup! lol Just weight the oats that are inside the cup. ; )

Also man, make sure it is LEVEL to the scoop.

...i know how to use a scale heh.
i'm zeroing it when i put the cup on, adding the oats till it reaches the 1 cup level.
i dunno i just find it odd!

you have to weigh the empty measuring cup on the scale first. remember this number.
fill the cup level with oats.
weigh again and subtract your first number.

Anyway, I've been using Quaker rolled oats but I bought a big container of PC rolled oats (exactly the same as quaker, but more bang for the buck) and they have different calories:
PC rolled oats:
1/2 cup - 40 grams
Quaker rolled oats:
1/3 cup - 30 grams
Wut? They're the same oat.Train insane, or remain the same. No hype necessary.

Whatever your scales say, is correct if you've crossed checked.
Just may mean that the oats you're eating aren't organic or organic oats just got better. They may be more dense with added compounds to speed up the growing process. They may not all be the same weight.

Forget volume. It's not accurate.
For one, they round the volume to amounts that are easily seen by the naked eye (1/4 cup, 1/2 cup, etc) instead of giving exact values (17/23 cup, for example).
For two, how tightly packed your food is will affect it's volume. You can compress oats to squeeze more into a given volume.
Forget volume. Use the mass (i.e. 40 grams). That's accurate. Get a scale and weigh the food.
