    Unsure of whey protein serving??!

    So I've been drinking whey protein for a short time now, but my husband has been buying it for as long as I've known him. I'm really unsure of the serving size...and I want to make sure I'm taking in the right amount. The label says 1 scoop, 33.35 g. But there are measurements in ounces on the scoop...I know that 1 oz is equal to 33 grams, which is only half of the scooper. Soooo is 1 serving size of this only half of the scooper? It doesn't make sense that they wouldn't specify that on the label. Please helpppp!

    You completely confused me lol. But what I do is weigh out the protein powder on a food scale (throw shaker on there, tare scale, add 64g of powder personally for a 48g protein shake.) If I just tried to eyeball by that scoop I'd be very very wrong I'm sure.

    haha sorry...a serving size is a scoop (33 g). the scooper has measurements in ounces so I did the conversion and 33 g is equal to 1 ounce. buuuut 1 ounce is only half of the scooper...sooo I've been thinking this whole time that 1 scoop was the entire scoop, but i guess it's not? i tried using my scale but it doesn't measure powder very well :/

    I actually never knew that 33g = 1oz, kinda cool. Anyways I guess they figure most people want 2 servings if you're saying that scoop can hold 2 servings. Weird, any protein powder I've ever bought had a scoop roughly the size of ONE serving (I think so they can say this bottle will give you say 100 servings when most people double up anyways and get 50 uses out of it.) You are using a food scale though right? Should be easy if you tare a shaker cup and then dump the powder in.

    Volume to weight conversion depends on the mass of the substance. Are you talking about 1fl oz of water equals 33g? If so, the less dense, fluffier protein powder would weight less per same volume. Keep in mind that most protein powders actually mean a "heaping scoop" (unless its an iso - they seem to measure more accurately as they are less fluffy).

    To be most accurate, get a gram scale - can't go wrong there. Will also be handy to measure high cal items, like oils and peanut butter, where eyeballing measurements can be off in cals significantly.

    To weigh my whey (lol), I usually put a little cup on my scale, tare (zero) it, then put my powder in. My scale is accurate to 0.5g, so it depends on how sensitive and accurate your scale is.

    ETA: Unless you originally meant dry ounces (in weight, not volume) to grams conversion - mass doesn't matter then of course, as they are both weight measurements. In which case one dry ounce = 28 grams. However, you can't convert a fluid ounce to weight (grams) so conveniently. Only a fluid ounce of water equals one dry ounce, and for example a fluid ounce of alcohol would weigh less than a dry ounce since it has a lower density.

    I'm assuming it's in dry ounces because it's on the protein scooper...it wouldn't make sense for it to be in fluid ounces. I just really want to know exactly how much i'm getting...I guess my food scale isn't sensitive enough to rely on. Just not sure why one scoop full would be 2 servings, weird I think.

    I would suggest looking at the weighted measurement on the nutrition label and weighing your protein inthe scale... A lot of times the scook isn't 100% accurate

    28g = oz. If it's liquid, it will say ml or fl oz on the container.
    Something like this is useful http://www.ebay.com/itm/220982125232
    1200g is enough for just about anything you'll do with it and 0.1g reading will be useful if you want to measure creatine and such. Change the scale between ounce and gram mode as needed.
