    Quick question guys ... how many cups = 40g dried oats?

    Surely one of you muscle heads knows this?

    What is it? Half a normal sized coffee cup?

    Thanks!

    40 Grams of dried oats isn't even a cup, it's a half a cup.

    Lightbulb

    grams are a measure of mass

    cups are a measure of volume

    without knowing exactly which product you have, and how theyre packages/cut, it will be hard to give a good answer


    With my Quaker's steel cut oats... 40g is 1/4 cup

    Given that they are not compressed or really fluffy, its safe to assume that the oats are the normal measurement of 80g=1US cup.... so 40g is a half cup

    why do people measure with cups???, ive got cups of diff sizes. a cup of water will weigh more than a cup of crisps (just an example of weight diff... not that i weigh my crisps lol), buy some cheap scales and measure 40g of oats if thats what you need. i bet if you weighed a protein scoop of oats it would be mroe than 30g

    A US cup is the standard measurement in the kitchen, even here in Canada. For most food objects (oatmeal not included), 1US cup = 230g = 230mL.... Back to highschool science, at 25 degrees celsius and 1 atm, 1cm^3 of water weighs 1g.

    fair enough for the US standard but it still seems weird to me. surely on an international website people should use grams (or even ounces). no one says they bench 500 cups. in the UK our food packages have the nutrition content for the packet and for the contents weighed to 100g's for easier comparison, does the US do that? or is it based on cups too?

    the US is weird. For some reason, we still do it this way, even though it is usually inaccurate and stuff. I think in the '50s or '60s they tried to change us over to metric, but it didn't work for some reason.
    I often wish we used the metric system for things like that. As it stands, most of us (including myself) don;t know how to use it.

    Food products will have, at the top of the nutrition label, the serving size. The serving size could be 1/2 cup, 1/4 cup, 16 crackers, 2 oz, 1 tablespoon, etc... next to that, the weight is in grams in parenthesis. I think they do this because most people are accustomed to using cups and tablespoons, instead of using a scale to weigh the product.
