1 lb = 453.59237 g

In the United States, a pound is equal to 16 ounces or approximately 453.6 grams.

This is significantly different from the European standard, which equates to 500 grams. Therefore, there are 16 ounces in one pound, not 14 like many people believe.

Hearing “a pound of” before describing an object often causes someone to think it weighs approximately one kilogram (versus a quarter kilo as stated on most packets).

If you’re in need of just eight ounces, it is common to think that a half kilo packet contains 16 ounces instead of the actual eight.

So this is how many grams are in a pound.
