Weight of CerealThe average weight of a manufactured box of cereal is around 500 grams or 17.637 ounces, with a margin of error of around 28.3495 grams or 1.0 ounce. Not all cereals are the same size so this is simply the average size of a standard box of cereal.
The weight of the cereal will depend on a couple of factors such as the density of the cereal and the size of the box. Most bands of cereals come in a wide variety of sizes. Much like t-shirt sizes, you can expect sizes ranging from small to large. Unlike clothing sizes, however, you will also see sizes like family and giant as well. That said there is no consistency among cereal manufactures in regards to weight. For example, a family-size box from one manufacturer may weigh 21oz and 22oz for another. This is in most part due to the wide-ranging weight of the ingredients used to make the cereal.
How many pounds does my Cereal weigh?
For this example will be using the family size fo Cheerios one of my favorites. If you are looking for a different band no worries. Almost all cereals provide the same measurements in a similar fashion so this should work for you. Near the bottom left-hand corner of the box of Cheerios, I found it's net weight measurements. This box of cereal weighs 21 ounces. If you translate that to pounds you will get 1.3125 pounds. If you are looking for grams then the 21 ounces become 595 grams as stated on the box.
