The question of converting a 14.5 oz to cups most usually refers to 14.5 oz cans of food, like the ones pictured below. Read on to get their contents’ measurements in cups.
So how can you measure a 14.5 ounce or 411-gram can of food into cups? It’s a simple method, but you’d have to do more calculations and some inspection.
Let’s take these two 14.5 ounce cans for instance:
A can of diced tomatoes:
A can of tortilla soup:
Apparently, a cup of diced tomatoes won’t weigh the same as a cup of soup. So, how many cups of food are there in each of the two 14.5 oz cans? The serving size for each can will be the key. Here is where the inspection comes in.
Take a look at the Nutrition Facts on the can of diced tomatoes:
“Serving Size: ½ cup (121g)”, and “Servings Per Container: about 3.5”.
We now know that there are 3.5 servings in the can, each serving yielding ½ cups of diced tomatoes. To get the quantity of cups of diced tomatoes in the can, simply multiply these two values. Thus, we get the equation:
½ cup x 3.5 = 1.75 cups or 1 ¾ cups
As a result, a 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes will yield 1 ¾ cups.
Let’s try the same method with the can of tortilla soup:
“Serving Size: 1 cup (245g)”, and “Servings Per Container: about 2”.
In the same way as the diced tomatoes, we’ll get this equation:
1 cup x 2 = 2 cups
Thus, a 14.5 oz can of tortilla soup yields 2 cups.And that’s our easy guide to convert 14.5 oz to cups!
