Which tables in the NIST 133 handbook would one use for liquids measured in pounds?  For example, we purchase liquid ingredients, such as soy sauce, in gallon jugs that are labeled in pounds.  Thank you in advance!

Wow, the NIST handbook is another regulatory delight!!

 

I tried to find it, but alas, could not.

 

if it helps at all, this is the calculator i use when i need to know the weight of a unit of a liquid

It would appear that handbook does not answer your question at all. YOu'll have to find the relevant law (state/federal) that governs how things can be sold

 

e.g. we pack pickles, which in Canada MUST be sold in ml.............in the UK, same product is sold by grams


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!
