**There are 29.57 milliliters (ml) in a conventional US ounce or fluid ounce, 30 ml for an ounce according to US food labels. For a UK imperial ounce, there are 28.41 ml**

Milliliters are used to measure liquids and fluid ounces is the appropriate term for the measurement of liquid materials in ounces. Usually, when ounces are mentioned it is most likely referring to US ounces unless it is explicitly stated as a UK imperial fluid ounce

Such conversions from one form of measurement to the other are especially common when trying out a new recipe.

In a moment I will explain the conversion of ounces to ml as well as the terms you should understand if you want to get familiar with cooking conversions.

Let us begin;

## What is an ounce?

An ounce is an imperial measurement mostly popular in the United States while most of the world uses metric measurement

It is commonly known as the measure of mass of an item or object and is measured with a weighing scale. There is also the other type of ounce which is the fluid ounce. It is the weight of a liquid in ounces

1 measuring cup contains 8 ounces, a gallon is equal to 128 oz and a tablespoon contains 2 ounces.

There are on average 3 different types of ounces which are:

- The US customary ounce which is equal to 29.57 ml
- The US ounces for food labeling used by food industries which is equal to 30 ml
- The UK ounce which is equal to 28.41 ml

Thete isn’t much difference when making kitchen measurements or measuring reasonable quantities.

When the measurements are for laboratories or made in huge quantities e.g for industries, then accuracy is important. The little differences between the three types of ounces will affect your outcome (whatever it may be)

## What is a milliliter?

A milliliter is a metric measurement used to measure the weight of a liquid. It is equal to 0.001 liter or 1000 ml = 1 liter

Milliliters are often used for smaller measurements of volume as it is easier than using ounces which can be confusing.

There are different types of ounces hence, the metric measurement of liquids milliliters and liters were introduced to make measurements easier

## How to convert ounces to milliliters

milliliters is the measure of the volume of liquids hence, when converting ounces to milliliters, you are most likey to be converting a liquid substance meaning, the ounces will be fluid ounces to milliliters. It is very unusual to convert dry ingredients to milliliters.

The formula for converting ounces to ml is;

Total ml = no. of oz x no. of ml in 1 oz

For example, convert 3 oz to ml

total ml = 3 oz x 29.57 (no. of ml in 1 oz)

= 88.71 ml in 3 oz
