How Many Oz in a Slice of Bread?

Did you know that the average slice of bread typically weighs 1.5 ounces? That’s quite a lot more than most people would assume! It even surprised me when I first heard it.

The exact amount actually depends on the type and size of the bread, since different recipes can yield very different weights per slice.

For instance, sourdough loaves tend to have a heavier consistency due to the use of natural yeast and longer proofing time, which makes each loaf weigh more ounce per ounce compared to other types like focaccia or white sandwich breads.

So if you’re ever wondering how much your next loaf will weigh – just remember: a slice of standard sliced bread usually (but not always) weighs in at about 1.5oz each.
