understanding ounces--basic question

June 3, 2009 - 7:15pm -- pietro79


I am Canadian, and would like to understand ounces.

There are fluid ounces for measuring volume, and avoirdupois ounces for measuring mass

So on this site for example, when recipes are posted in ounces, are all ingredients stated in ounces "ounces by weight" (avoirdupois), unless otherwise specified?

I'm having problems with the milk bread recipe from Yippee. I don't know just how to convert the grams, etc. into ounces, pounds or cups. Please help as I have a couple of recipes I would like to try but am not sure of the amount of ingredients.
