## Oz to Gallon History and additional information.

The unit ounce is not only for measuring volume but is also a measuring unit of mass and weight. To clarify, Originally an ounce is the unit of mass. The fluid ounce was defined by the volume occupied by a substance, for example, an ounce of water or alcohol. Thus, various ounces were used for centuries. It first came into use in the 13th century for the weight of foods and commodities. Traders made commercial use of this unit. This unit system was called the Avoirdupois system. But in 1824, the British Parliament defined the imperial gallon as the amount of 10 pounds of water at zero degrees Celsius. Thus, a gallon should have 160 ounces. However, the US fluid ounce measure is based on US gallons which are based on a wine gallon of 231 cubic inches and equal to 128 ounces.

In1959, Ounces (oz) became an internationally agreed entity by countries that use the pound as a large-scale unit.

Hence, 1 ounce = 28.4130 ml in the UK but in the US, 1 ounce = 29.5735 ml

For serving nutritional charts on foods, 1 ounce is equivalent to 30 ml, according to the US Food Labeling Regulation.
